Exclude a file type? *.lnk?

Post by RichE » Fri Mar 31, 2017 2:43 pm

This is probably simple, but I can't seem to find just where and how to format an option to NOT included .lnk files. That is, any shortcuts.

Specific section/option in Tools/Options would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rich

Everything Options
Indexes -> Exclude => Enable exclude list

Then at the bottom, Exclude files:

Try either *.lnk or ext:lnk ?

See if either work?

Thanks, that seems to have done it!

BTW, ext:lnk didn't work, but *.lnk did.

To exclude lnk files from your index:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Check Enable exclude list.
  • Change Exclude files to: *.lnk
  • Click OK.

Thanks for the image Ghost_Dz,

You are setting the exclude filter for folders.

Please remove the folder excludes and set Include only files and Exclude files at the bottom of the Exclude options page:


Exclude Indexing of Files Without Extensions
