PDFs wont open after using Everything Search Tool

Post by Relloski » Wed Feb 10, 2021 10:13 pm

I've got an odd issue.

After using the Everything Search tool and attempting to open a PDF through the tool, it doesn't respond. Then after closing the tool and trying to open a PDF on my desktop or other drive, I also get no response.

Version 1.4.1.1.0.0.5 (x64)

This usually occurs when you run Everything as an administrator.

Please try running Everything as a standard user:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.
Does the issue persist?
