SOLVED Doesn't find filenames with upper case letters?

Post by jaspersplace » Fri Jan 15, 2010 4:58 pm

Hi,

I have used Everything for a year or so, and I must say it's a great program. What a relief, compared to Windows Search ;)

However, I've run into a bit of a problem. Today, I was searching for 'big sky' but Everything didn't find anything. I was sure the filename existed so I searched and searched again. In the end it turned out that the filename was 'Big Sky' with an upper 'B' and 'S'.

Why couldn't Everything find it? I looked at the program settings but didn't see an option to include upper case letters or something similar.

Is there a way to fix this? Thanks in advance, Jasper

Does searching for Big Sky find any results?

Do you have match case enabled from the search menu?

Yes.

That did the trick! I think I somehow changed this by accident I guess, it works again now. Thank you, and sorry for the noob question :oops:

Maybe you accidentally pressed the match case keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Q.

That could very well be the case, because I use keyboard short-cuts all the time (Auto Hotkey). Thanks again for the quick reply!
