Suggestion / Request

Post by mohsyn » Fri Sep 10, 2021 8:49 pm

1. A larger search bar
2. A bar with icons/text above or below search bar to quickly access items clicked recently (it would help with going back and forth on documents/files we searched for and have already opened / viewed )
3. from the bar as requested in point 2, ability to pin select icons which we very frequently search/access

(actually the bar can be a mix of applications/documents/searches)

And thank you sooooooooooo much for 'everything'
i've been using for years recommend everything to everyone :D

Thank you for your suggestions and support mohsyn,

To increase the search box font size:
  • Completely exit Everything (File -> Exit)
  • In Windows Explorer, type in the following address:
    %APPDATA%\Everything
  • Open your Everything.ini
  • Change the following line:
    search_edit_font_size=
    to:
    search_edit_font_size=24
    where 24 is the font height in pixels.
  • Save changes and restart Everything.
Consider adjusting the dpi (dots per inch - the size of all controls) in Everything:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /dpi=144
    (the default is 96)
    Type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /restart
Adjusting the search box size and UI scale from within the UI is in development.
A bar with icons/text above or below search bar to quickly access items clicked recently (it would help with going back and forth on documents/files we searched for and have already opened / viewed )
I will consider a run history bar.

A run history window (Tools -> Run History) is in development.

For now, please try sorting by Run History from View -> Sort by -> Date Run. (or show the Date Run column and click the Date Run column header)
3. from the bar as requested in point 2, ability to pin select icons which we very frequently search/access
Please try the run history feature in Everything. (Tools -> Options -> History -> Enable Run History)

Show the Run Count column by right clicking the result list column header.
Sort by Run Count by left-clicking the Run Count column header.

Right click a file to set the run count.
The larger the run count, the higher the result appears in the list.

Opening a file will increase the run count by one.
Pressing Enter from the search box will always select the result with the highest run count.
