Any plans to enable icons in bookmark entries?

Post by SuperDude »

@void, do you have any plans to enable icons in bookmark entries? Everything's bookmarks system is already fantastic, but if we could create icons for bookmarks, that would be even greater :D

Thank you for creating Everything. I absolutely cannot live without it. Everything gets high praise on Reddit, so I know I'm not alone.

Thank you for your feedback SuperDude,

The next alpha update will have basic support for bookmark icons.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I'll make a post here once this is ready for testing.

That will be so cool! My vision sucks, so I rely on icons to quickly identify file types and menu entries. Thanks again :P

Just curious ;-)

Where do I find icon support in bookmarks, according the current release notes, it should be available for testing :D

Everything 1.5.0.1320a adds very basic support for bookmark icons.

Icons are shown in the "Show All Bookmarks" dialog and under the Bookmarks menu.

Currently, icons must be manually set in your bookmarks.csv file.

To manually set a bookmark icon:
  • In Everything, from the Bookmarks menu, click Show All Bookmarks.
  • Click OK.
    (this will force Everything to add a new Icon column to your bookmarks.csv)
    (this only needs to be done once if you previously ran an Everything version older than 1320)
  • Completely exit Everything (File -> Exit)
  • Open your %APPDATA%\Everything\Bookmarks-1.5a.csv with Notepad or Excel
  • Locate your bookmark item and set the last field to the icon location.
  • For example:
    "C:\Windows\Notepad.exe"
    (use a ,index suffix to specify the icon index, for example: "c:\windows\explorer.exe,2" )
  • This should look something like:

    Code: Select all

    "My Bookmark Name",0,"",,,,,,,,,,"My Bookmark Search",,"","",0,,,,,0,,,"C:\Windows\Explorer.exe,2"
  • Save changes and restart Everything.


Support for changing the icon from within the Everything UI is on my TODO list.

Thank you for adding the bookmark icons, and the support for .msi files. Everything just keeps getting better and better! :D

Likely, I don't understand the instructions, I can't find Show All Bookmarks:

Are you using the v1.5.0 Alpha version of Everything, and not the Beta? If you are using the Alpha version, you might be using an old version of Everything. “Organized Bookmarks” was changed to “Show All Bookmarks” in a more recent build, if I remember correctly.

What beta do you talk about ?
There is only the official 1.4 line and the current Alpha version.

In the latest available Everything 1.5.0.1321a version (Status: 5.10.2022), there is no "Show All Bookmarks" entry.

Menu "Bookmarks" > Organize Bookmarks... > OK
Bookmarks.csv: The last column has the column heading "Icon" (without inverted commas).

Between the double quotes you can define an icon for your desired bookmark as described above by the author.

Please try Bookmarks -> Organize Bookmarks.

I think you may have an old language pack installed?
What is your language set to under Tools -> Options -> General?

Thanks for your reply, sorry for my late response.

For a few years, I've had a custom language file because of a customized Context Menu, and I have never understood that there was a new language file since there has never been one in the zip file for the new version.

Bookmarks now have the right options after restoring the language file.

Thanks again.

Everything 1.5.0.1325a also fixes an issue with bookmark icons not working under Select Bookmark dialog (Ctrl + B)

Hm, unless I've overlooked the obvious, but how do I change or add an icon to a bookmark?

Running 1.5.0.1326a right now and did not find an option in UI.

There's no UI option yet, you must manually set the icon in your Bookmarks.csv
