By default, Everything will only keep a list of changes since Everything was started, including the USN change Journal in the recent changes list will allow you to quickly search for changes that can go back many days.
To include the USN Journals in the recent changes list:
In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the NTFS tab.
For each local NTFS volume:
Check Include USN Journal in recent changes.
Sorting by recent changes is instant and persistant.
Right click an empty spot in the result list, from the Sort by menu, click Date Recently changed.
Sort by recent changes to monitor changes to the Everything index in real-time.
