How exclude shortcut link from results?

Post by burgundy » Thu Apr 15, 2021 12:42 pm

How do I exclude shortcut links being listed in the results?

I have tried using *.lnk in Options > Indexes > Exclude but it does not do what I want. It doesn't seem to do anything although other filters in the list work fine.

I am using version 1.4 .

You might be excluding folders only?

To exclude lnk files from your index:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Select your *.lnk filter and click Remove.
  • Change Exclude files to: *.lnk
  • Click OK.
