Re: [Suggestion] /match_start_of_filename_with_caret=1 with match path enabled - match last path component

You can use \file* instead when match path is enabled (see also wildcard matching ). (or nopath:^file , but that is a lot of typing). In my opinion ^ should still match the start of the filename. When match path is enabled, the filename expands from "filename.txt" to "c:\path to\filename.txt". If it...
