Filter subfolders across all folders

Post by doublesfiles » Fri Jun 07, 2019 5:31 am

Hey everyone.

Version (x64) Windows 10

When I search for files, I'd like to filter (exclude) folders called "KMN". I have several folders called "KMN" and they're spread across several folders.
If anyone knows how to do that, please tell me, I'll appreciate it!

Thanks :D

Please try including the following with your search:

! = NOT.

If you use this search often, please consider adding a filter:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters....
  • Change the Name to: Exclude KMN
  • Change the Search to: !\KMN\
  • Click OK.
Filters can be activated from the Search menu, filter bar (View -> Filters), right clicking the status bar, filter keyboard shortcut or filter macro.
