Please try:

Using Alt + Print Screen to take a screen shot of the debug console.

Run Everything in debug mode and redirect output to a file:
Make sure Everything is not running.
From the start menu, run cmd
navigate to your Everything location.
Run:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -debug > %APPDATA%\debug.txt

This will output the debug messages to %APPDATA%\debug.txt
