Search Functions

Post by void »

A list of all the search functions available in Everything 1.5.

Use Search functions to find files/folders by specific properties and property values.

Syntax
Date Syntax
Date Constants
Search Modifiers
Sub-expressions
Lists
Column Header Search
Slow queries
Search weights



Syntax

function:value

Example:
date-modified:today
size:>10mb



Dashes (-) in search function names can be omitted.
For example
datemodified:today
is the same as:
date-modified:today



Use double quotes to escape spaces and |
For example:
artist:"John Doe"
-or-
artist:John" "Doe



Use a * before the : to treat the rest of the search as the value:
For example:
artist*:John Doe
-or-
si*:"1+1=2"



If value is empty, Everything will match non-zero values or non-empty text.



The following operators can be used with numerical values:

function:<=value
Less than or equal to value.

function:<value
Less than value.

function:value
Equal to value within the specified granularity.
size:1kb is the same as size:1..1024

function:==value
function:=value
Exactly equal to value.
size:=1kb is the same as size:1024

function:>value
Greater than value.

function:>=value
Greater than or equal to value.

function:!=value
Not equal to value.

function:!value
Not equal to value with specified granularity.

function:start..end
function:start-end
Is in the range of values from start to end (inclusive).

Example:
size:<=10mb (size is less than or equal to 10MB)
size:<10mb (size is less than 10MB)
size:==1kb (size is exactly 1024 bytes)
size:=1kb (size is exactly 1024 bytes)
size:1kb (size is between 1 and 1024 bytes)
size:>=10mb (size is greater than or equal to 10MB)
size:>10mb (size is greater than 10MB)
size:!=1kb (size is not exactly 1024 bytes)
size:!1kb (size is not between 1 and 1024 bytes)
size:2mb..3mb (size is between 2MB and 3MB)
size:2mb-3mb (size is between 2MB and 3MB)



Date Syntax

year
month/year or year/month depending on locale settings
day/month/year, month/day/year or year/month/day depending on locale settings
YYYY[-MM[-DD[Thh[:mm[:ss[.sss]]]]]]
YYYYMMDD[Thh[mm[ss[.sss]]]]]
YYMMDD
x<years|months|weeks|days|hours|minutes|seconds> (ago from now)
>99999999 (FILETIME)
* wildcard card is supported.

Example:
dm:2021
dm:07/2021
dm:2021/07
dm:02/07/2021
dm:2021-07
dm:2021-07-02
dm:2021-07-02T10:52
dm:20210702
dm:2days
dm:3months
dm:4hours
dm:<1day
dm:>1week
dm:*-02
dm:*-*-*T9:00..*-*-*T17:00



Date Constants

Search Modifiers

Prefix a search function with zero or more search modifiers to apply the associated effect.

For example:
case:regex:content:"^Start of the file content with some digits \d\d\d\d"



Sub-expressions

content:<abc 123>
is the same as:
content:abc content:123

content:<abc|123>
is the same as:
content:abc | content:123



Lists

Semicolon (;) delimited lists can be used with any search function that accepts a number, date or text.

Semicolons can be escaped with double quotes.

Everything will treat the list as an OR list.

width:1920;3840
is the same as:
width:1920 | width:3840



Substitution

Everything will substitute $property-name: with the property value from the current file or folder.

substitution will work for "filename" functions (most string functions)

exists:$shortcut-target:
regex:^(.*)\.[^.]*$ sibling:$1:
extension: stem:.$extension:



Formulas

Everything will use Formulas when no function is specified and $property-name: is used.

The file or folder matches if the formula evaluates to true.

$date-modified:==$date-created:   (date-modified is equal to date-created)
UPPER($name:)>="N" UPPER($name:)<="S"   (Name starts with N to S)
$name:[1]=='o'   (Second letter of name is o)
len($stem:)%3==0   (Stem length is a multiple of 3)
*.lnk !exists($shortcut-target:) (find lnk files where the shortcut target doesn't exist)



Column Header Search

To search for text in an active column:
  • Right click a result list column header and click Search property...
Searches will generally match the text shown for the associated property.



Slow queries

A progress bar is shown at the bottom right of the status bar for queries that take a long time.
Double click the progress bar to cancel the search.



Search weights

Each search function has an internal weight that measures the estimated speed of the function.
Search functions are reorder from fastest to slowest.
Faster search functions are executed first.

For example:
content:"abc 123" "c:\my docs\"
will find files in "c:\my docs" before looking for file content.

There are 3 major weight groups:
  • Search functions that access indexed information (fast)
  • Search functions that access the disk or system index (medium)
  • Search functions that access file content (slow)

file-exists:
folder-exists:
exists:

Search for files or folders where the specified filename exists in the index based on a previous regex search.

Use Match Path, path: or a path separator in the regular expression to match full paths and filenames (otherwise, the same path is assumed)

Use \ to escape the following character.
Use file-exists: to match filenames of files only, use folder-exists: to match filenames of folders only.
Use exists: to match either files or folders.
Prefix with the case: search modifier to match case.

Note: only the results matching the previous regex search are shown.

Examples:
regex:^(.*)\.mp3$ fileexists:\1.jpg (finds mp3 files where a jpg with the same stem and path exists)
folder:regex:^(.*)$ fileexists:\1.zip (finds folders where a zip file exists with the same name)
regex:^(.*)\\([^\\]*)$ fileexists:\1\\backup\\\2 (find files, where a file with the same name exists in a backup subfolder)
