Include common user file types only

Post by andreasd083 » Thu Oct 22, 2020 4:44 am

I love the program, but as I mostly use it to search documents, pictures and user created files I get a list full of file types I'm not interested in. I am using the exclude system files but still there are a lof of files. I Started using the exclude file types and excluding as I go but it would be easier to have a list of files to include or a checkbox for show only user created files with the most common file extensions.

Is there a list of the most common user file types and/or could this be implemented in the settings?

You can create a filter and include all desired file types in it ..... See predefined filters for e.g.

Please try the following to include only 'common' file extensions:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Change Include only files to:

    Code: Select all

  • Click OK.
