Searching sub-directories for files

Post by DenverDave » Fri Nov 20, 2009 5:33 pm

I looked around and searched the forums and could not find an answer:

How can I in the Everything gui, search a directory/sub-dirs for files by extension:

like
c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\pics *.gif

Thanks
Dave

You will need to escape the white-spaces in your search with double quotes (").

For example, to search for:
c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\pics *.gif
type:

Code: Select all

"c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\pics\" *.gif
