Code for ‘exact match only’ in search bar

Post by kazzybash » Fri Nov 18, 2022 5:17 pm

Hi,

this should be on the forums somewhere, but I can’t find it yet: what ‘code’ should I type before/after my search term to get an EXACT match and an exact match to what I typed ONLY.

Example:

I want to find this following file and exactly this file only (there may be duplicates, fine, but it has to have exactly this name):

onlythisfileandnoother.wav

So that Everything don’t give me files with ‘only’ or ‘other’ in the results.

Kind regards, kazzy
