Rank results higher depending on file extension?

Is there any way to sort files like: EXE, MKV, MP4, MP3.... and so on. So they're sorted higher in the results list than DLL, INF, INI for example?

I know I'm able to filter out files but I would like to keep all files searchable but rank some files higher with specific file extensions when searching.

The TwinKey plugin allows to define file groups.

Twinkey is not combatible with TCs Dark mode

Time to configure a different layout or the Total Commander forum? :D

In the meantime ... no one is answering @Korven's question ... :)

No, there is not. You could increase the run count of certain files [1] and sort by run count [2]
But that might slow down Everything in case of large amount of files (just a guess; not tested).



[1]
- Select files from the result list
- Menu:File > Set Run Count

[2]
Menu:View > Sort by > Run Count
