/restart

Does the search query /restart (+ENTER) have the same results as:
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.
(especially when changing running as admin)

Yes, it is very similar.

The only difference is /restart + ENTER will not use all the initial command line options.

Only the following command line options are passed to the restarted instance:
  • -instance <instance name>
  • -config <Everything.ini path>
Basically, Everything will shutdown, write the current config to disk and call:
Everything.exe -instance <current instance> -config <current path to Everything.ini>

If there is no current instance name specified, the -instance command line option is not set.
If there is no current Everything.ini filename specified, the -config command line option is not set.
In most cases, neither of these will be set and Everything will restart by simply shutting down and calling Everything.exe.

I tend to use Exit Everything / Restart Everything as /restart + Enter requires Everything to be running.
