Depending on what you're wanting to do...

Code: Select all

infolder:<path>	Search for files and folders in the specified path, excluding subfolders.

Code: Select all

infolder:C:\WINDOWS\  .bmp
Note, no space between infolder: & the directory path.

Dear therube

my intention is - I have for example MP3 folder with names of interpreters, name of album, and individual songs

Like Z:\Folder1\Folder2\Folder3\MP3\Pink Floyd\Wall\

here are mp3 songs

My aim is to quickly search for files which contain in their path Folder3, BUT without need to enter Z:\folder1\folder2, because when searching I maybe do not remember full path.

Is it still possible?

thanks

Searching for "pink floyd"\ and or wall\ would work, you could also use:
path:"pink floyd" path:wall
