How to backup options

Post by searcher1 » Sat Jun 06, 2020 9:30 am

Hi

Is there a way to backup options...as in Tools > Options?
So that after a clean install I can set my options with a single action.

I already know how to backup bookmarks and filters, so I just want to backup options only.

Thank You

Everything.ini.

There are other files you may want.
Search & Run History.csv, Filters.csv, maybe any .efu files (perhaps less useful for what you described)...

Another method to backup settings only:
  • In Everything, type in the following and press ENTER:
    /config_save
    Choose a filename for your settings backup and click Save.
To load your settings from a backup:
  • In Everything, type in the following and press ENTER:
    /config_load
    Select your settings backup and click Open.
    Restart Everything:
    In Everything, type in the following and press ENTER:
    /restart
