Post by void » Fri Apr 23, 2021 5:54 am

A list of all the new Everything 1.5 ini settings.



Everything.ini

To open and modify your Everything.ini:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, under the Debug submenu, click Config
    -or-
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    about:config
    ---this will open your Everything.ini in Notepad---
  • Make any desired changes to this file. (ignore the Please make sure Everything is not running before modifying this file warning)
  • Save changes and exit Notepad.
  • In Everything, accept the prompt to reload your configuration.
    ---Everything will restart to reload your modified configuration---


Syntax

name=value
; comment

For settings that accept multiple values, separated each value with a semicolon (;) or comma (,)

Use double quotes to escape ; or ,
While inside quotes, use \" and \\ to escape a literal " and \ respectively.
White-spaces are treated as literal.

Examples:
"text containing a semicolon ;";value2;another value
"text containing \"quotes\"";value2;another value
"text;containing;\"another\";list;C:\\Windows\\System32";a normal path that doesn't need to be escaped C:\Program Files;another value

Results:
text containing a semicolon ; ; value2 ; another value
text containing "quotes" ; value2 ; another value
text;containing;"another";list;C:\Windows\System32 ; a normal path that doesn't need to be escaped C:\Program Files ; another value



Search command

To set an ini setting from within Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
/name=value
where name is the ini setting name below.
If successful, you should see name=value in the status bar for a few seconds.

/selected_border=1
If successful, you should see selected_border=1 in the status bar for a few seconds.

Fast ASCII search is only used when match diacritics is enabled.
Enabling Fast ASCII search no longer gives any noticeable search performance increase.
If enabled, searching for i will no longer match Turkish I with dot.

  • 4 = None.
  • 5 = Convert win\\sys to win**\sys**
  • 6 = Convert win\sys to win*\sys**
  • 7 = Convert win\sys to win**\sys**
* = match any character (except \ or /) any number of times.
** = match any character any number of times.

path_search_type=0 example:
Win\\Sys\\hosts => **Win**\**Sys**\**hosts**

path_search_type=1 example:
Win\Sys\dri\e\hosts => **Win*\*Sys*\*dri*\*e*\*hosts**
Win\\hosts => **Win**\**hosts** (A double path separator is converted to **\**)

path_search_type=2 example:
Win\Sys\hosts => **Win**\**Sys**\**hosts**
The sub-path order is important, for example sys\win will not match windows\system32

path_search_type=3 example:
Win\ => path:Win
\32 => path:32
Windows\System32 => Windows\System32 (no change)
