A simple bar for the Advanced Search feature

Post by hamidm » Wed Jun 03, 2020 12:19 pm

Hello Voidtools team,

I have a suggestion for improving the interface of the app; however, firstly, I want to thank you for this great, simple and reliable app.
One of the most impressive features of Everything is its extra simple interface. Therefore, I think you would be glad to here suggestions about further simplifying the interface.

One of the suggestions that have been appeared in my mind is transferring the advanced search dialog to the header of the main window. I.e., like some user-friendly software, placing a tiny "Advanced Search" button at the right side of the search field (next to the filter drop-down menu) or anywhere else. So, by clicking the button, the search field expands and advanced search fields appear. As a result, the user doesn't needs to open a new dialog box.

Best regards,
Hamid

Thank you for your feedback.

Adding a toolbar button to show the advanced search is on my TODO list.
Thanks for the suggestions.

For now, please consider creating a keyboard shortcut to open the advanced search:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Keyboard tab on the left.
  • To the right of Show commands containing, type in:
    Select Search | Advanced Search...
  • Click Add....
  • Press a new keyboard shortcut, eg: Ctrl + F and click OK.
  • Click OK.
