reject path in context menue of search results?

Post by LaserDolphin » Mon Nov 09, 2015 6:54 am

I don´t know is this a suggestion or i don´t find the function.

Because:

Sometimes, if i want to search not a specific pictures, but just a good, large pic to upload or something, i search in one path where i found a possible candidate, and see all the other pictures in this path.
But the search engine list all pictures i saw too, so when i ready, i want to reject the path from the search-results.

possible?

sorry 4 my english

There's no context menu to do this at the moment.
However, you can do this with the following search:

If you wish to exclude a folder, subfolders and files from the search, please use the not operator ! followed immediately by the folders path with a trailing backslash.

Code: Select all

!C:\folder1\subfolder1\
Please make sure you use double quotes to escape spaces:

Code: Select all

!"C:\folder with spaces\sub folder1\"
For example, you are searching for *.jpg in d:\pictures and you want to exclude the folder d:\pictures\cats

Code: Select all

*.jpg d:\pictutes\ !d:\pictutes\cats\

Oh this was FAST. Thank for the hint...

Possible??

Code: Select all

*.jpg d:\pictutes\ !d:\pictutes\cats\ !d:\pictutes\dogs\ d:\pictutes\elefants\
And without

Code: Select all

d:\pictutes\
also?

All nice BUT, can´t select and copy the Path. A long Path is a Writing Torture :lol:
Otherwise i can open the Picture, open attributes copy the path and past into everything....

Searching for d:\pictutes\elefants\ would make the other path searches irrelevant, you could use just:

Code: Select all

*.jpg d:\pictutes\elefants\
However, if you had another subfolder, such as "low quality" that you did not want to include in the search you could use something like:

Code: Select all

*.jpg d:\pictutes\elefants\ !"d:\pictures\elefants\low quality"
All nice BUT, can´t select and copy the Path. A long Path is a Writing Torture :lol:
Please try using Ctrl + Shift + C to copy the result items full path and file name.

Ctrl + C will also work, but in both cases you may need to trim the name part of the end of the pasted text.
