What happens? is there any error shown?

Please note that really large lists (larger than 4000 characters) are currently not rendered correctly.

To search for a list of jpg and png files from a text file:
  • In Everything, make sure the search is empty.
  • From the Search menu, click Advanced Search...[/b].
  • Scroll down to Search for a list of file names.
  • Click the Browse... button on the right.
  • Select your text file with a list of jpg and png filenames and click Open.
  • Note: the search for a list of filenames may appear empty, however it should still function correctly.
  • Click OK.
  • Are any results found?

So is...

Code: Select all

filelist:"right|on|time|in|the|pouring|rain"
the same as

Code: Select all

nopath:wfn:<right|on|time|in|the|pouring|rain>

Same endresult, only the first one (resultlist:) will be more efficient as it was designed to compare many to many filenames

There's a performance reason for matching whole file names, Everything can create a simple binary tree lookup table to see if the whole file name matches the search. filelist: is designed to compare millions of files against millions of files.
