Remove a folder from all searches

Post by HughsKite » Tue Mar 09, 2021 2:33 am

Hello. Is there a way to remove a folder with all of its subdirectories (e.g. the TEMP folder) from all searches without having to type it every time in the search bar?

To exclude your temp folder from your Everything index:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Click Add Folder....
  • Manually type in the folder name:
    %TEMP%
  • Click OK
  • Click OK
    Everything will perform a quick reindex to exclude this folder.

Thank you so much! Somehow I didn't see this option. You can close this thread now
