Reduced Search to a Folder Quickly

Post by BrettUSA269 » Wed Jun 22, 2022 12:43 pm

First Love the product.

I would like a way to reduce my search results to a folder quickly.

I know the product has the Folder Pane where I can select a particular folder on the left side. I have very deep sub folders and find it difficult to reduce search to a folder QUICKLY - unless there is some command or short cut I don't know about. It's too much trouble when one is constantly changing paths like I do trying to organize my folders and contents.

It would be great to add the following commands to the right click when cursor is over the file path.
1. "Reduce Search to Path" selected-takes current search and reduces it to the path.
2. "New Search" which would open the path with existing search if any into a new open Search Everything Window.

This would be a great help in reducing the key strokes/clicks because as I use your product I hate opening windows explorer and doing a search within windows folder.

Thats possible in version 1.5
View / Folders
Select your start folder
and use "Search Everything 1.5..." from the context menu.
Options / General / "Show Search Everything folder context menu item" must be checked.
