Save/Load Exclusion List

Post by dataway » Sun Mar 28, 2021 2:50 am

How do I save and load (a saved) Exclusion List? Should be able to keep different Exclusion List files for different applications. Should be able to save the Exclusion List file in my nominated folder. Sorry if this has already been answered - this is my first visit to the forum.

Please try search filters.

For example to create a filter to exclude C:\Windows and C:\Program Files:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters....
  • Change the Name to:
    Not Windows or Program Files
  • Change the Search to:
    !c:\windows\ !"c:\program files\"
    ! = NOT
  • Click OK.
Filters can be activated from the Search menu, Filter bar (View -> Filters), right clicking the status bar, filter macro or filter keyboard shortcut.
