will open "add columns... " (Select Property dialog)

I'll consider a + button above the vertical scrollbar to show the add columns dialog.

Thanks for the suggestion.

This is normal for Everything when the database is busy.
When the database is busy, new database requests are added to a queue.
Once the database is ready, Everything will process this queue and update the result list.

I will consider caching the visible items.
However, you would still have this hall of mirrors effect when showing items outside this cache.

I've noticed also that when the user keep typing in the Search Edit while sorting, this cancel the sorting.
I think the user would like to keep sorting in background, while he keep writing in Search Edit.
(Also I've noticed, I can't watch the last column and keep typing in the Search Edit, since the Horizontal bar always scrolled back when typing.
If you pin the NameColumn the Horizontal bar shouldn't scrolled back.)

Thank you for the feedback Stamimail,
I've noticed also that when the user keep typing in the Search Edit while sorting, this cancel the sorting.
This is by design.
Changing the search will cancel the current sort.
I will consider an option to allow the previous sort to continue in the background.

I have added an ini setting to disable resetting the horizontal scrollbar on searching in Everything 1.5.0.1255a.

To disable resetting the horizontal scrollbar on searching:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /reset_hscroll_on_search=0
  • If successful, you should see reset_hscroll_on_search=0 in the status bar for a few seconds.
If you pin the NameColumn the Horizontal bar shouldn't scrolled back.)
Freezing columns is still on my TODO list.
