only show first level results?

Post by dbaxter » Fri Feb 26, 2021 4:27 pm

Hi,

It seems like Everything shows results for all sub-folders.

Is there a way for Everything to only show results in a named folder and not the sub folders in the named folder?

Thanks.

Dave

Yes, there is:

Code: Select all

parent:"c:\my folder"
That will show all files and folders that have "c:\my folder" as their parnet.


If you only want to see files in the "c:\my folder" folder, add file: to your search query:

Code: Select all

file:  parent:"c:\my folder"
Or when you only want to see folders, replace file: with folder:

Thanks for the help! I've used ES many times a day for years - but only at a superficial level. Thanks for pointing out some "new" features!
