Re: Ability to Search Tags

Hey, Void, I've been busy so I have only just looked at your post below. I was hoping for something in the Windows File Explorer context menu, which would make it much easier to implement this feature. For example, I have a lot of folders which have an .exe file with support files that are not locat...

Re: Ability to Search Tags

Void, I have a minor problem I was wondering if you had a solution to. Many of my program folders are filled with program support files that I don't need to index. Usually, the only file that I need to index is the exe file. Is there a easy way to exclude everything except for the exe file or just t...

Void, What if a document's tags also includes the folders it resides in? When you organize your documents within a file system, the folders necessarily pertains to the document and it will make it easier to search for that document. For example, suppose a document named "April" resides in folders th...

Re: Ability to Search Tags

Good call. I checked the version and for some reason, I had 5.1247 installed. I downloaded from the same link again but got 5.1249 this time. Strange.

Anway, "/opus_meta_information=1" now works. I'll test it out and let you know how it works.

Searching within Microsoft Office File Contents

Hello, Everyone,

I know that Search Everything can't search through file contents yet but is there a way to incorporate other search engines within Search Everything?

Specifically, is there a way to combine Microsoft Office's Search within file contents?

I'm assuming it's a no but just checking.
