Separate shortcuts to search in current folder and globally?

Post by Darthagnon » Thu May 28, 2020 3:54 pm

Greetings.

I can't help feeling that I must be missing something obvious. I'm trying to set 2 global hotkeys on my PC:

Ctrl+Alt+Space = global search with Everything
Ctrl+F3 = search in current Windows Explorer working directory with Everything

I know about hotkey_explorer_path_search, but after testing it, I couldn't figure out how to have a separate hotkey for it, and it activated even when I wanted to do a global search. Is this possible? or could this please be implemented in the next version of Everything?

I read these old topics, which covered the same issue, but they only provide workarounds:

hotkey_explorer_path_search works for all 3 hotkey options in Everything.

I'll consider an option to set multiple hotkeys and the option to set the search from Explorer for each hotkey.
Thanks for the suggestion.

Thank you, void, for considering my suggestion, and even more so, for making one of the most useful pieces of software I have ever used!

Any updates with regards to the possibility of multiple hotkeys?

None yet, sorry.

Please consider using a third party tool to set multiple hotkeys, such as AutoHotKey.
