when using file:!. folders+files are displayed
when using file: !. only files are displayed

when using folder:!. folders+files are displayed
when using folder: !. only folders are displayed

Is this correct?

What are you trying to accomplish?


Looks like
> file: !.
is returning files without extensions,
which is the same as
> ext:


> folder: !.
is returning folders without extensions


>file:!.
looks to be returning all folders AND files without extensions
>folder:!.
look to be returning folders without extensions AND all files


Looks like unexpected behaviors in there.

It's a limitation with Everything.

! and file: are both modifiers on the same term.
a space splits the search into to terms, file: AND !search

Everything will work as expected when you introduce a space.
file:!. is actually !file:.
which is why you see folders.

I've changed Everything so it correctly differentiates between !file: and file:! for the next beta update, if you would like to test this now, please try Everything 789b:
