Everything 1.5 search file name in dedicated folder

Post by peter_mars » Tue Jan 25, 2022 2:37 pm

Dear Forum friends,
I'm looking for an instruction how to find files, just searching in folders with part of folder name.
For example :

Folder :
Car_Frankfurt_4wheel
Car_Munich_4wheel
Car_Hamburg_4wheel

Files in these folders :
220125 electric car
211210 diesel car

imagine each of these folders has equal file names as stated above.

How to search just in folder *Frankfurt* for files *car*
or
How to search in folders *4wheel* for files with *electric*

Any idea how this might work ?
Thanks very much for your support
br
Peter

path:4wheel    electric
Use "" when your search contains a space:

Code: Select all

path:"4wheel drive"    "electric car"
