A few keyboard shortcuts for those who like Vim-style controls

Post by traycerb » Thu Aug 09, 2018 9:31 am

Just a collection of a few shortcuts I use to make navigating Everything a little more like my favorite text editor.

Note this group of shortcuts means that in the Results List you can't jump straight to files starting with the respective shortcut letters. This isn't usually a problem for me because I usually sort by Date Modified, not by alphabetical, so jumping by starting letter isn't as valuable. when I do need it, I jump to a nearby letter, and use the other controls to navigate there.

Code: Select all

Result List | Item Down -> J (Result List)  
Result List | Item Up -> K  (Result List)  
Result List | Start of List -> G (Result List) 
Result List | End of List -> Shift+G (Result List) 

Code: Select all

Search Edit | Focus Search Edit -> / (Result List)

I can't understand the logic of these Vim-style controls.
Anyway,

You can use Shift, like:
Shift+J
