when using file:!. folders+files are displayed
when using file: !. only files are displayed

when using folder:!. folders+files are displayed
when using folder: !. only folders are displayed

Is this correct?

What are you trying to accomplish?

Looks like
> file: !.
is returning files without extensions,
which is the same as
> ext:

> folder: !.
is returning folders without extensions

looks to be returning all folders AND files without extensions
look to be returning folders without extensions AND all files

Looks like unexpected behaviors in there.

It's a limitation with Everything.

! and file: are both modifiers on the same term.
a space splits the search into to terms, file: AND !search

Everything will work as expected when you introduce a space.
file:!. is actually !file:.
which is why you see folders.

I've changed Everything so it correctly differentiates between !file: and file:! for the next beta update, if you would like to test this now, please try Everything 789b:
