Fixing those two annoying glitch.

The first is, to make the user to select to make it able to open the folder only with double clicking the file name.

Second is, to make the user to select to make it able to only see the last folder name on the "Path", not to always see the whole too-long path name.
The whole too-long path name is enough to see only on the top of the UI.

Thank you for your feedback lonang,

The first is, to make the user to select to make it able to open the folder only with double clicking the file name.
Please try enabling 'Open path with double click in path column':
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Results tab on the left.
  • Check Open path with double click in path column.
  • Click OK.

Second is, to make the user to select to make it able to only see the last folder name on the "Path", not to always see the whole too-long path name.
An option to always show the last path part is in development.
If you would like to try this now, please check out the Everything 1.5 alpha.

In Everything 1.5, type in the following search and press ENTER:
/path_ellipsis=1
If successful, path_ellipsis=1 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.

More discussion on path_ellipsis
path_ellipsis


Consider adding the Parent Name and Parent Path columns and removing the Path column in Everything 1.5.
An option to display 'narrow' paths (last path part is displayed first) is on my TODO list.

@lonang also, extra setting in v1.5 Alpha: Make it to click anywhere in the Path column, not just on path letter text.
Use the command /path_hit_text_only=0 to make this setting.

Everything 1.5.0.1301a adds a path_narrow ini setting.

To enable narrow paths (shows the last path part first):
  • In Everything 1.5, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /path_narrow=1
  • If successful, path_narrow=1 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
To disable narrow paths:
  • In Everything 1.5, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /path_narrow=0
  • If successful, path_narrow=0 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.

Paths are still sorted by full path for performance reasons.
Consider sorting by the Parent Name property.
Consider using the Windows Property System -> System.ItemFolderPathDisplayNameNarrow column.

path_narrow will disable path_ellipsis.
I have on my TODO list to add narrow support to path_ellipsis.

Code: Select all

/path_narrow=1
causes an immediate crash when I enable it.

I have about 1.8M objects on my drive with some horrendously long path names (including a OneDrive directory that includes the company name), but nothing too out of the ordinary for Windows 10 users. [

To recover, I stop the Everything 1.5a service, I manually edit

Code: Select all

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Everything\Everything-1.5a.ini
set

Code: Select all

/path_narrow=0
, and finally restart the Everything (1.5a) service.

No crash on Win7 when entering the /path_narrow=1 command into the Search bar and hitting Enter.

Thank you for the crash report wistlo,

Everything will crash if highlighting is disabled.

I will post a fix soon.

Forgot to mention, my crash wipes out the stored Network Folder data and requires an hours-long traversal of some large shared drives across a VPN connection to re-index those files.

I tried running without the Network folders defined, also crashed. I had Highlighting off, but will just wait for the fix to try this feature again.

/path_ellipsis=1 works (I never knew that was there until I tried 1301, nice!).

In general, when I have a crash happening on startup:

If I
1. stop Everything service,
2. copy c:\everything\Everything-1.5a.db to a back up location,
3. crash
4. stop Everything service
5. restore the .db file from backup
6. restart Everything service

will these steps bring back my Network Folder info, and otherwise be harmless?

The Everything Service does not maintain your Everything database.
This is done by the Everything search client.

The Service does not need to be stopped and restarted.

Please make sure the Everything search client is closed (File -> Exit) before you backup or restore your Everything.db.



Everything 1.5.0.1302a fixes a crash with path_narrow when highlighting is disabled.

Correction. No. 1 means that it is necessary not to open the window explorer as it is now, but to display the results for the dir internal file within everything. It is a powerful function to replace the explorer of Win10.

I think the second opinion was delivered well. It would be nice if the folder name could be displayed instead of the path name.

I'm sorry I wrote my meaning wrong. I was in a hurry just before I got off work.

Consider adding a 'Search Parent in Everything...' context menu item (for Everything 1.4):
  • In the registry, navigate to:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell
  • Create a new Key called:
    Search Parent in Everything...
  • In this key, create a new String Value, set the name to:
    Icon
  • Set the value to:
    C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe,0
  • Create a new Key called:
    command
  • In this key, set the (Default) value to:
    "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe" -parentpath "%1" -select "%1"
  • Now you can right click your file and click Search Parent in Everything... to find all other files under the same folder.

It would be nice if the folder name could be displayed instead of the path name.
I'm not quite sure what you mean. Could you please give an example?
Just the parent folder name? -Please try the Parent Name column in Everything 1.5.

1.

It emits error. I want Everything to work as MS explorer so that it can be a substitute of MS explorer, not with a context menu.

2.
Yes.

I am not sure what the error message says.

If you are using Everything 1.5, please try:
  • In the registry, navigate to:
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell
  • Create a new Key called:
  • Search Parent in Everything...
  • In this key, create a new String Value, set the name to:
  • Icon
  • Set the value to:
  • C:\Program Files\Everything 1.5a\Everything64.exe,0
    (Please make sure this matches your Everything.exe)
  • Create a new Key called:
  • command
  • In this key, set the (Default) value to:
  • "C:\Program Files\Everything 1.5a\Everything64.exe" -parentpath "%1" -select "%1"
    (Please make sure this matches your Everything.exe)
  • Now you can right click your file and click Search Parent in Everything... to find all other files under the same folder.

A folder sidebar is in development.
To show the folder sidebar:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the View menu, check Folders.

Thank you for the translation.

Is this message shown when you open jpg files (eg: pressing ENTER on a jpg result)?
-or perform some other action (eg: right click -> Copy)?

Does this message occur for other file types?
-There might be an association issue in the registry for jpg files.

Could you please send a screenshot of your registry (Start -> regedit) under:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg
