How to display a list of files in a path containing multiple spaces?

Post by Vadim_k » Sun Jun 11, 2017 3:35 pm

I need to display a list of files in the folder

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples 
and its subfolders. When I use a search expression C:\Program Files (x86)\Everything, some 30 files are displayed. I figured that the problem may be with me incorrectly searching a path with spaces. For testing purposes I created folder

Code: Select all

C:\Program_Files_(x86)\AutoIt3\Examples
and copied all files from the original folder. Now when I search the new path without spaces, all 3000+ files show up.

What was the correct way to search a path containing multiple spaces? Also, Out of curiosity what may be a reason that Everything showed 30 out of 3000 files In the 1st place?

Try:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples"
OR:

Code: Select all

C:\"Program Files (x86)"\AutoIt3\Examples
Both will be working
