Show content of folders found

Post by VRF » Wed Jul 01, 2020 6:35 pm

Hi,

When i do a search i always get folders and images with the specific search query. Which makes sense.
I was hoping there is a way to also get
**the folders that are showing up from search +their content**
+the rest that the search found separately

all in one go :)

So its kind of a double search. But i was hoping search everything can do this in a single go.

so lets say i search for "mood" i get:
\mood
\in a good mood
\good mood music
summer vibes good mood.mp3
beach dancing im in a good mood.mp3

i would want the result of:
\mood
..\ al files showing up that are in this folder no matter the name
\in a good mood
..\ al files showing up that are in this folder no matter the name
\good mood music
..\ al files showing up that are in this folder no matter the name
summer vibes good mood.mp3
beach dancing im in a good mood.mp3

i tried to search for the solution in the forum.
but there is just so much going on there. i cant really find my answer in there.
i hope i made my question easy enough to read !


the only thing i managed to get done is getting each individual folder content by doing
"\mood" | "\in a good mood" | "\good mood music"
which is not consistent when adding new folders on my drive.

Does this work for you?

To get files with "mood" in the name and also get files that are in a "mood" folder

Code: Select all

file: \*mood

If you have that turned on,
file: \*mood*
should do it.
(I should have mentioned that before. Sorry ... )

i did notice when i do a couple it takes longer to search.
and i hear my fans whirl so it must be pretty intensive?
should it not all be indexed though?
it says Querying.. at the lower bar of search everything window.
