Everything

INI

The Everything.ini stores all the settings for Everything.

Viewing and changing the Everything.ini

Most of these settings can be changed from within Everything, in the Everything Options.

The Everything.ini is automatically generated. Any changes made to the Everything.ini while Everything is running are lost when Everything exits.


Please exit "Everything" before making changes to the Everything.ini file.


The Everything.ini should be opened and saved as UTF-8.


Everything.ini is located in:
