Processing URL files

Post by Dmitry D. » Wed Jun 27, 2018 2:53 am

Please, add support for the content indexing and preview panel for *.url files.
They are just a text files in the ini format.

Those are Windows settings; not specific to Everything.

But ... you can add preview and content searching yourself for these .url files.
It requires some registry tweaking. Will post instructions tonight or tomorrow when I have access to my notes (have done this myself for a couple of file extensions)

Thank you very much... but with url files it didn't help.
And first of all, I am interested in searching url by content.
Third party applications for example store additional information:

[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.steves-digicams.com/digsoftware.html
[MyIE2]
VisitTimes=13


My Windows search settings are right — .url filter checked as «search by title and content».
Folder favorites is included in the Search.

May be add direct support for url files by Everything?

.URLs are just ansi text files. Please try the ansicontent: search function, for example:
*.url ansicontent:steves-digicams.com

Note: File content is not indexed, searching will be slow.
