limit search to only one drive or folder

Post by jojoberlin » Fri Mar 22, 2019 11:17 pm

This might be a stupid question, but I can't seem to figure it out...

How do I limit a search to a specific drive or folder? ie I only want results from my music folder...

Do I need a filter to do that?

Just type the path / drive

Code: Select all

D:\Music
To search only .wav files from D:\Music\My Collection\

Code: Select all

*.wav "D:\Music\My Collection"

Aha- I only now realized that when I use the drop down box in the top right, I actually choose a filter! :)

...because I'd love to avoid all that typing of the paths and everything, and so I guess I can use a filter, so that then I can select from the drop-down which folder(s) I want to search in, no?

Ha, figured it out :)

Make a new filter "Music" and put into search:

Code: Select all

path:"F:\02 --- MUSIC"
Thanks vanisk, anyway, you put me on the right track :)
