[Solved] 1250 window inactive

Post by w64bit » Fri Mar 26, 2021 3:20 pm

Using 1250, do a search.
Right click on a folder in search list > Search Everything 1.5a => the program window become inactive.
Is there any setting I missed?

There is no "Search Everything 1.5a" after righ clicking a folder in the results ?
Also the program window is not inactive for me.
[Edit]
After enabling that context menu it behaves as expected.
The Window is not becoming inactiv.

Works here.

Make sure the Show Search Everything folder context menu item option is checked under Options > General (not empty, not a little black square)



If that part is OK, could you post the output of the following two CMD commands?

Code: Select all

reg.exe query "HKCR\Directory\background\shell\Search Everything 1.5a...\command" /ve
reg.exe query "HKCR\Folder\shell\Search Everything 1.5a...\command" /ve

If it helps, this is the output on my system:

Code: Select all

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shell\Search Everything 1.5a...\command
    (Default)    REG_SZ    "C:\Program Files\Everything 1.5a\Everything64.exe" -path "%V"


HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Search Everything 1.5a...\command
    (Default)    REG_SZ    "C:\Program Files\Everything 1.5a\Everything64.exe" -path "%1"

There is "Search Everything 1.5a" after right clicking a folder in the results. (The registry check is the same as you posted).
When I use it, the Everything window is not active anymore (the title bar is gray) and I have to click on it to make it active so I can type the next search.

Of course the first windows with your search is inactive now
because you have started a new one with the results of your right clicked folder.

Nope. One instance.

I can confirm it.
Didn't happen at first (or more likely: I didn't notice it), but now it does.

Thank you for the bug report w64bit,

Please try Everything 1.5.0.1251a.

This version fixes an issue with Everything setting the focus to the Everything system tray window when processing the command line from another process.
