Exclude a file type? *.lnk?

Postby RichE » Fri Mar 31, 2017 2:43 pm

This is probably simple, but I can't seem to find just where and how to format an option to NOT included .lnk files. That is, any shortcuts.

Specific section/option in Tools/Options would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rich

Everything Options
Indexes -> Exclude => Enable exclude list

Then at the bottom, Exclude files:

Try either *.lnk or ext:lnk ?

See if either work?

Thanks, that seems to have done it!

BTW, ext:lnk didn't work, but *.lnk did.
