7zip like GUI for everything

Post by anmac1789 »

Is it possible to view all the file and folder properties in a zip file with everything just like how 7zip displays each file and folder's properties when opening it in within their GUI or like Winrar? THey all have a search bar at the top too

Currently, no.

Everything doesn't index filenames inside zip files, yet.
An option to index zip files is on my TODO list.



There's a container filename property.
Container filenames are shown in a single column.
zipfilename: can be used to search for a particular filename inside a zip file.

How can I use that search parameter?

Example zipfilename: usage:

zipfilename:everything64.exe

This will match the latest Everything-1.5.0.1337a.x64.zip that contains the Everything64.exe file.

does it have to be a .exe file? or can I do this with a .zip file ? can I give it a path?

Can be any filename.

Currently, Everything will only look inside .zip files with zipfilename:

You can limit the results to a path.

For example, limit results to D:\Downloads and find zip files containing a txt file:

"d:\downloads\" zipfilename:*.txt

Thank you this is quite helpful. What other uses can I do with this?

There's also a a Container File Count property.

These zip properties can be added as a column by right clicking the result list column header and clicking Add columns -> application/zip (select from the left side)

You can index this information.

Unfortunately, there's no nice way to browse filenames yet..

7z/rar support is on my TODO list.

searching for a specific filename in zip files don't work. For example, Im searching for "DOC-20220321-WA0003." but it didnt give any results but I found a zip file on my E drive which contains it. How should I approach this?

Does Everything list any filenames in the container filenames column:
  • Right click the result list column header and click Add columns....
  • In Select Property, search for: container
  • Select container filenames and click OK.
  • In Everything, search for your zip file.
  • Are there any filenames shown under the container filename column?

The container filenames column doesn't list the filename that is contained within the specific zip file even after I typed it as zipfilenames:DOC-20220321-WA0003 and the container filenames column is shown. That specific zip file doesn't show in the results

It could be a 64bit zip which is not supported yet.

7zip will report the zip as 64-bit + under Info.

If you have 7zip installed, open the zip archive with 7zip and click the Info button in the toolbar.

If the zip file is 64 bit, 64-bit will be shown at the bottom.

I removed the image as it contained your Windows username.

Thanks for the screenshot.

The screenshot shows 64bit +

Everything will not read filenames from 64bit zip files yet.
Support for 64bit zip files is on my TODO list.
