Running multiple instances of Search Everything

Post by j2associates » Mon Sep 07, 2020 10:51 am

Hello,

Search Everything appears to be a singleton app. Is there any way to run multiple instances of Search Everything. A common scenario for me is to do an initial search to define an initial universe. Then it would be great if I could open a second instance to do a more refined search on specific things I found in the first search.

Thanks

To open a new Everything window:
  • From the File menu, click New Search Window (Ctrl + N).
    -or-
  • Right click the Everything system tray icon and click New Search Window.
The new window will inherit the current search window settings.
The new window will share the same index.


If you are looking to run multiple instances, please see:

-Multiple instances are designed for different indexes.
