Everything does not remmber search history

Post by 2late » Sat Jun 01, 2019 11:47 pm

Everything 1.4.1.935 does not keep history
(keep enable search history and show search suggestions both are enabled )

I have to ask: And the Enable search history setting? (same page)

That's what I expected (just had to make sure :))

First thoughts:

1.
Just typing a query in the search bar itself isn't enough to make it go to the search history.
You need to do something with one of the results. Or just go to the result list (cursor down or Enter)

2.
You don't have Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything enabled (MEnu:Tools > Options > General ) and you don't have write access to the folder where Everything.exe is located.



Do you have a "Search History.csv" somewhere on your system?
Any contents? (you can open it in Notepad, for example)

maybe the configuration file "Everything.ini" was corrupted or something like that
I have deleted this file and the problem has gone

No problem (at all!)
Glad you got it working again!
