How do I import bookmarks

I just downloaded a new version of Everything and my bookmarks are gone. From a forum search, I found them, but I don't know how to reimport them.

Update status bar when doing Content searches

Great tool! Recently had need of doing content search on large folder with many files. The status bar just displays Querying... It would be nice if it displayed more information to help gauge where we are in the process. Ideally a count, file name and path could be displayed or at least a file name.

Change status bar from time to time when scanning

Network drives can be very large. I understand there is a performance hit for displaying stuff in the status bar so although it would be cool to watch the folder names scroll by, that is not practical. However, perhaps the status bar could be updated do display a folder name every 25 or 50 folders, ...

put folder count in the status bar

If I search for files, I get a count in the status bar. If I use folder:, I get information about the first folder in the list. I would prefer that the count be displayed when using Folder: also.

Thanks for a great product!

Highlight entire result pane row when a file is selected

Hello, In the results pane, it would be great if the entire row was highlighted when you clicked a given file name on the left. Many times, associated paths are very similar and it is easy for your eye to skip up or down, especially if file names and paths are long. Highlighting the entire row would...

Re: Chained search results

I agree that most of the time this works perfectly. But there are cases where you want to drill down and then come back up to maybe drill down in a different area. You could accomplish this by copying the more general search and then recreating it, the suggestion would just make that process easier.
