Bug: Double-clicking in Path column sometimes opens path, sometimes launches file.

In Everything 1.4, double-clicking in the Path column will open the path (if that setting is enabled). But in 1.5 it sometimes runs the file instead of opening the path. I'm not sure if I'm missing a setting in my migration from 1.4 to 1.5

Everything 1.5 will only open the path when you double click on the path text.
Whereas Everything 1.4 will open the path anywhere in the path column.


Please try disabling path_hit_text_only:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /path_hit_text_only=0
  • If successful, path_hit_text_only=0 is shown in the statusbar for a few seconds.
