Toggle window Hotkey behavior

Post by kilikilimanjaro » Wed Sep 15, 2021 5:51 am

The toggle window hotkey in 1.4 would close and open the program, removing it from the task bar. The current behavior only toggles the window while keeping the icon in the tray.

Please enable close_on_toggle:
  • In Everything 1.5, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /close_on_toggle=1
  • If successful, close_on_toggle is shown in the statusbar for a few seconds.
I will set close_on_toggle to 1 by default for the next alpha update.

Could you explain this?
The toggle window hotkey
Is this a Windows hotkey or a hotkey in Everything?

And what behavior change are we to be seeing depending on the setting of, close_on_toggle ?

Tools -> Options -> Keyboard -> Toggle Window Hotkey.

It is a user customizable hotkey to show the Everything window from anywhere in Windows.
There are three options, one to always make a new window, one to toggle the window and one to always show the window.


In Everything 1.4, toggle window would close the opened window.
In Everything 1.5, toggle window will currently minimize the opened window.

Minimizing might be more desirable as Everything will keep the search, view, file information, icons and thumbnails cached.

close_on_toggle=1 will close the shown window as in Everything 1.4.
close_on_toggle=0 will minimize the shown window.
