search concatenated file name and path

Post by cottsak » Sun Mar 22, 2009 7:47 am

the identity of a file often has as much to do with its name as its name and path.

a feature where i could search the concatenated string of the filename + path, rather than (it appears) the filename OR the path would be fantastic.

maybe if this feature was disabled by default and i could turn it on via the options dialog and a check box.

If you would like to include the path and file name in your search use a back-slash (\).

Using a back-slash (\) will force match path on.

For example you have the thousands of abc.txt files on your computer, but you want to find the one in the 123 folder, search for:

Code: Select all

123\abc.txt
