1.5.0.1251a (x64) - Context menu "Search for this filename in Everything" - Icon colour

Post by tuska » Sat Mar 27, 2021 4:19 pm

In version 1.5.0.1251a (x64) I see the icon in the context menu still in the colour of version 1.4.1.1007.
The current Everything icon would be desirable. Is there any way to set this?

1.5.0.1251a (x64) - Context menu "Search Everything 1.5a..." shows the current Everything icon.

That is a different colour! The 1.5 one is a bit more reddish (but I am slightly colourblind).

IIRC correctly, void changed it as the 1.4 icon looked 'brownish' on some older displays.

But we might get an entire new icon for 1.5 in the end, like this one or this one

Both icons are context menu items for the new version 1.5a (at least on my PC).
I wanted to point out that they currently still have different colours.

For a possible new icon in the future, I would like it to have
that it has such strong colours as the current red or the previous brown icon.

Ah, now I see! (earlier I just looked at the icons)

The first one isn't an official Everything context menu entry. I guess you got it from here? ;)

Then you need to change the path to Everything in 2 places (marked bold). The first one is for the icon (just to be complete...) :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\*\Shell\SearchFileName]
"MUIVerb"="Search for this filename in Everything"
"Icon"="\"C:\\Tools\\Everything\\everything.exe\""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\*\Shell\SearchFileName\command]
@="\"C:\\tools\\Everything\\Everything.exe\" -namepart \"%1\""


EDIT:
You can change the text after MUIVerb= to anything you like, even German :)

Thank you!
That was the solution!

SearchFile_Everything_1.5_Kontextmenü.reg

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\*\Shell\SearchFileName]
"MUIVerb"="Search for this filename in Everything"
"Icon"="\"C:\\Tools\\Everything_1.5\\Everything64.exe\""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\*\Shell\SearchFileName\command]
@="\"C:\\Tools\\Everything_1.5\\Everything64.exe\" -namepart \"%1\""
The context menu entry "Search for this filename in Everything" now has a red icon. :)
