Drag n drop?

Post by imcal007 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 6:26 pm

I suffer from c-t-s which means i can`t always type very well.

However i can drag and drop so is it possible to somehow incorp a drag a file or folder into the search bar so that everything can search for that file folder picture etc using drag and drop etc.

Please try enabling search_edit_drag_accept_files:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /search_edit_drag_accept_files=1
  • Restart Everything:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /restart

You'll need to restart Everything to apply this change:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /restart

Is it possible that explorer & everything runs with different privileges? (either one of them runs in Admin mode)?


[btw, the method mentioned above by @void works for me]

Windows sees that as two different accounts (security-wise).

Try it with these Everything settings:
  • enable Everything Service
  • disable Run as administrator
Both settings can be found under Menu:Tools > Options > General

Ok iv'e just reinstalled windows 10, everything now allows drag and drop i don`t know what the issue was but now it works, so thanks.


However i have another issue, when i drag and drop the folder it shows the full path in the search bar is there a way to simply have the folder i dropped to show up so other folders with the same name on my system are shown.

I do appreciate the help.
