Find extact file name

Post by DaveMidgley » Fri Mar 20, 2020 9:01 am

if I search for myprogram.exe I also get, for example, MyProgram.exe.config, myProgram.exe.manifest. Putting "MyProgram.exe" in double quotes gets the same results. Is this a bug or have I misunderstood something?

Whole File Name.

wfn:myprogram.exe
(And lets say the file found is at; c:\tmp\myprogram.exe.)

wfn: is also affected by the Match Path setting.

So if Match Path is enabled, a search for wfn:myprogram.exe won't find anything, but c:\tmp\myprogram.exe will.
