ext:

(Actually, what that does is to find files without "dots".
A file name like, "zlib_1.2_dll" is not "extensionless".
The "extension" is "2_dll", so is not found.)

(There is something else, but off the top of my head, I'm not remembering.)


(Oh, & searching for ext:, sorted by size, very quickly found me two files that should of had an extension but did not.)

Thanks!

No worries, the "ext:" found the files I was looking for.

Another way is to search for:
!.

! = NOT

Thanks.

Not sure if I should open a different thread but had a different question. How do I search for videos with "!" exclamation points? When I put in an exclamation point in the search it clears everything out.

Use double quotes to escape !
"!"

! only means NOT when it is the first character.
