[Closed] es.exe and exe: filter

Post by nspp » Tue Oct 27, 2020 9:28 am

I use es.exe from batch files (SD like) to find files, folder, ...
(latest es.exe ES-1.1.0.18 and everything Version 1.4.1.996 (x64) )

I can use with success this command

Code: Select all

es.exe -n 50 -%1 ext:%PATHEXT.=% 
but the following does not return any file !

Code: Select all

es -n 50  %1 exe:
Same request in Everything UI returns correct result.

Code: Select all

notepad exe:

exe: modifier/filter seems to be ignored but folder:, ext: works as expected

I also did not found any command line option to select only executable.

ES does not have access to your Everything filters.

Please try the following search:

es -n 50 %1 ext:bat;cmd;exe;msi;msp;scr

Thanks for the explanation.
I never defined custom filter nor custom macro. I was just hopping exe:, video:, audio: standard macro would work as folder:.

Many thanks for your work !

Maybe this helps a little in understanding why there is a difference between them.

Many thanks this is helping me a lot understanding default Filter.csv file and how exe,pic,video,audio,compressed are just a shortcut around ext:
I will add switches in my modified SD.cmd to append the ext:.....
