Is there an option to show files and folders mixed?

Post by lilypure604 » Sat Jun 13, 2020 8:08 pm

I may be a bit crazy (I feel like I saw the option somewhere at one time), but isn't there a setting somewhere to show files and folders mixed in search results instead of showing folders first? I've looked thru all the options, maybe I'm thinking of another program, hah.
Nonetheless, I love Everything, use it all the time, thank you so much!

Currently, no.

Everything uses two separate databases for files and folders.
Mixing the results from two databases would be very CPU expensive.

An option to index folders as files (thus a single database) is currently in development.
This would allow you to mix file and folder results at the cost of slightly more memory usage.

Ahhh okay, thank you very much! Must have been somewhere else. I'll keep an eye out for the feature when it arrives. :)
