Integrate Everything Into File Explorer Searchbar

Postby JohnTravolski » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:47 am

I've searched for this several times but it seems that I have been unable to find anything about it. I'm interested in using the search capabilities of "Everything" directly inside Windows Search. I'm not entirely sure if this is possible, but if I could use its search instead of Windows 10's default search to get results faster, that would be absolutely great.

To make it clear what I'm referring to, it's this:

Basically, what I want to do is type a result into that search bar there and then immediately have all the results show up directly in File Explorer, just as they would inside "Everything;" this is in contrast to the slow searches Windows uses by default.

I'm not sure if this is possible, but if it is, would somebody please be kind enough as to point me to a good guide for setting this up? I never search the content of files, so this is a particularly appealing option to me. Thanks.

Currently, Everything can not be integrated into Windows Explorer Search bar.

I do have it on my TODO list. However, AFAIK there is no API to do this so it would be a ugly hack to get this going.
