ALT+SPACE shortcut

Post by MauriceE » Tue Sep 15, 2020 7:39 pm

I was using ALT+SPACE to get a mac type of searchbar. As of today it seems to be gone? Ive tried finding it in settings but i cant find it anywhere. Was it even with Everything? Or am I becoming delusional :P
Thanks guys

What did Alt+SPACE do?
If it had to do with Everything, was it something you defined in; Tools | Options | General -> Keyboard ?

IIRC, ALT-Space is used by Wox (or maybe one of the many other launchers).
Wox uses Everything to find it's files.

Normally Alt-Space is reserved by Windows to open the window context menu (Move, Minimize, etc). Wox overrules that.

No. You have to install Everything separately (if you hadn't already ..).
Wox comes only with the interface that is needed to "talk to" Everything (Everything.dll)
