Filtering list in index>index journal

Post by harryray2 » Tue Aug 03, 2021 12:23 pm

Index>index journal

Possibly some find filters to include or exclude files and/or folders in the list.

I ask because of the large amount of entries.

Use the action box to limit the results to a specific action, for example:

File Delete



Use the search box to limit the results.

Set the search to a drive, for example:

c:

Set the search to a folder, for example:

c:\windows
"c:\program files\"

Search for a file extension, for example:

.jpg

Use the regex: modifier for more control, for example:

regex:\.jpg$
regex:(?!d:)

How would I go about filtering out file and path results?

eg. storage.js or the path C:\Users\user\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\*

I tried ! but that doesn't seem to work...

I will consider ! as the NOT operator.

With the latest Everything 1.5 alpha, use the not: modifier.

For example:

not:storage.js not:C:\Users\user\Desktop\FirefoxPortable

Thanks...not: works nicely.

Any chance of having index keep a history, or some sort of bookmark or exclusion list to save typing in the exclusions each time?
For the moment I'm using a clipboard editor to paste the text in.

A search history drop down for all search boxes is on my TODO list.
Thanks for the suggestion.
