Back/Forward

Postby w64bit » Tue Apr 18, 2017 7:49 pm

Is there any possibility to use Back/Forward mouse buttons to go back and forth in the searches?
Example:
- first search "file:txt"
- second search "regex:[^\x00-\x7f]"
- third search "file:len:>50"
If I press Back mouse button to go to second search.
If I press Back again to go further back to first search.
Similar for Forward button.

Mouse back/forward buttons (Browser Back/Browser Forward) should be the default for previous/next search in Everything 1.3.4 or later.

You may need to reset your Everything keyboard shortcuts if you are using an Everything.ini from Everything 1.3.3 or earlier.

Please make sure you have Search history enabled:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the History tab on the left.
  • Check Enable search history.
  • Click OK.

To manually set mouse back/forward for previous/next search:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Keyboard tab on the left.
  • Set Show commands containing to: go
  • Select View | Go To | Back.
  • Click Add....
  • Press mouse back and click OK.
  • Select View | Go To | Forward.
  • Click Add....
  • Press mouse forward and click OK.
  • Click OK.

To reset your Everything keyboard shortcuts:
