\Q The begin quote operator. Everything that follows is treated as a literal character until a \E end quote operator is found.
\E The end quote operator. Terminates a sequence begun with \Q.

identically finds the word as without this regex, there is no difference! So why is this operator?

My example (& screenshot) may be a bad example. But my point is \Q..\E is working in Everything (as opposed to the title of this post).

The purpose of \Q...\E (in Everything Search) is beyond my knowledge.

Someone else will reply to that.

For instance, in order to match two stars, you could have this in your regex:

\Q**\E

so, for example, in Everything incorrectly looking for two dots
regex:\Q..\E
