Search by file type (extension) in Details View - almost have it....not quite

Post by infonutt » Tue Sep 01, 2020 6:19 am

Hi,
I appreciate the versatility of Everything and I use it multiple times per day. SO thank you!
I understand that in a search I can add ext:such as ext:txt;doc;pdf.
Unfortunately I have some files I can not remember in what extension I saved them - and sometimes they are letters contained within computer files so the lists can be endless.
In Details View you can click on a Header - Name, Modified, Path, etc, and it will sort.
Would it be possible, please, to add a "file type" list. Then I could click on that and they would all be grouped together. Would make a visual search so very much easier!

I appreciate your consideration.
Thank you.
