Re: Things to do

I apologize for the previous post. Two suggestions / requests: 1) Implement the historical / chronological history described by specular. At least as an option; it's far more intuitive and customary. 2) I'd like to be able to set a font color for zero-length files. Actually I'd like to gray them out...

Re: Search history is jumbled

.
@therube - thanks for trying to explain this (though I don't know what "Search Count" is). But I'd really like at least the option of a plain historical order i.e. MRU. That's what my brain is conditioned to look for.

Search history is jumbled

. I really would like "search history" (the dropdown bar on the main window) to be in time sequence. By this I just mean the standard behavior for such things: most recent search at the top, then older ones going down. As it is, Everything seems to save only some of the searches, and the most recent...

Re: Everything window is 'Always On Top'

Have you tried a CTRL+T (two keys, the CTRL key and the T key) ? On version 1.3.2.649b, this is also available under the "View", "On Top" menu and you can then choose the option(s) from there. Mousey Yeah, well... go ahead and make it look easy... ;-} I don't know how I could overlook something so ...

Everything window is 'Always On Top'

I'm using Version 1.3.3.658b (x86) under Windows 7 Ultimate, with AMD graphics. In the past few days, Everything has begun keeping its window "always on top". I haven't done anything on my PC (graphics driver changes) that might account for this. However, I did install the "Important" MS Windows upd...

Re: Everything 1.3.1.636b does not "refresh"

Thank you, nagan. I'm pretty sure that some if not all the "problem" files were found via being in a specified folder. So that would explain it. If I find out more I'll post again.

Re: Everything 1.3.1.636b does not "refresh"

FYI, this still happens with v1.3.3.658b. The difference from my 4 April report is that most of the ~170 deleted files did disappear from the Everything window and showed up in the Recycle bin, as they should. However, about a dozen files were deleted but stayed on in the window. I'm sure that if I ...

Re: Make Everything use Windows 'default' (not orig) explore

Yes, the solution is to add entries to the Tools | Options | Context Menu items. For example, for "Explore Path" enter: $exec("C:\Program Files\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" %1) assuming you have XYplorer installed in C:\Program Files\XYplorer Works great - thanks. I just had no idea this customization opt...

Jerry points out that my post http://forum.voidtools.com/viewtopic.ph ... 7395#p7395 is an exact duplicate of his request. What a coincidence - and I'm sorry I didn't find this myself. Anyway, nagan kindly explained a fix, and I have added a reply there showing actual usage.

Make Everything use Windows 'default' (not orig) explorer

I recently moved to XYplorer as a replacement for Windows Explorer (on my Win 7 32-bit PC). XYplorer has the ability to set itself as the "default Windows explorer", which I've done. So it pops up as expected when I open folders on the desktop etc. However, when I "Open path" on an Everything return...

Just have to say "Thanks" again

I use Eveything for hours at a stretch, sometimes, and rarely less than an hour a day. I love it and, now, don't know what I'd do without it. Thanks SO MUCH for continuing to develop and support it. This is a peerless tool.

I did donate, but... more needs to be said.

I just found the latest update to the beta. Thanks so much for maintaining and improving this terrific tool. If I lost it, I'd have to simply give up on a major (and very important to me) cataloging project.

Re: Everything 1.3.1.636b does not "refresh"

I should have mentioned that I'm using the portable 1.3.1.636b package (portable is great to have). I thought that might bear on the refresh issue. But I'm now trying the old v1.2.1.375 version on the same hardware, and it refreshes much better. And this wasn't formally installed; I just copied its ...
