Searching for partial paths

Post by andreyu » Fri Mar 12, 2021 11:44 am

Hi,

I am trying to switch from Listary to Everything, but I'm not sure how to achieve the same kind of partial path results.

Let's say I have a folder named Projects and a subfolder named Green

If I typed proj\gre in Listary, then the Green subfolder would be the first option in the search results.

Are there some settings I can activate in Everything to get the same result?
If not, what would be the shortest query I would need to type in Everything in order to reach the Green folder?

Please try the following:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, check Match Path.
  • Search for the following:
    proj \gre
