Hello, is there any function to search for files with the date and time created and date modified and time are equal to each other? thanks

dm:dc:

Note: Date created information is not indexed by default. This search can take several minutes.

To index date created information (which will make this search instant):
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab on the left.
  • Check Index date created.
  • Click OK.

Date comparison syntax:
dm:<op>dc:

For example, find files with the date modified earlier than the date created:
dm:<dc:

dm:dc: is the same as dm:=dc:
