Use Everything as default Windows 7 search tool

Post by tarawa » Sun Dec 08, 2019 3:21 pm

Hello, dear voidtools community!

I really like Everything utility, as it helps to find everything on my PC. Windows 7 has keyboard shortcut Win+F to open built-in search utility. Right now I have error when using Win+F:

[Window Title]
search:crumb=location:C%3A%5CUsers%5CUser%5CDesktop

[Content]
There is no program associated to perform the requested action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

Question: is it possible to have option in Everything to override Win+F keyboard shortcut, so that when I press Win+F I get Everything window?
Thanks.

I don't know if this is just here but everything don't accept any combination of Win+key unless Ctrl\Alt or shift is also included

This autohotkey script make what you want

#F::
Keywait,F
Run,full path\Everything.exe
Return
