It would be nice if Property: sorts were maintained.

Add Length
Sort by Length

Perform a new search, say, "trains"

Back arrow

Prior search is now sorted by (something other then Length)

Please enable fast Length sort:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Property tab on the left.
  • Check Fast Sort.
  • Click OK.
Sorting by length will now be instant and persistent.

Oh, OK. I'll give that a shot. (It will help.)

Oh.
That indexes all files (meeting the filter).
(For me, that is too much.)

I was just looking for something that worked on a "lazy load" basis, current window only, such that back arrow remembered previous sort, even if was happened to be on a Property: (like Length).

such that back arrow remembered previous sort
back/forward will remember the sort for the next update.

Thank you for your suggestion therube.

Everything 1.5.0.1253a will now remember the sort order for previous navigation history.
