Identify filter searches more clearly

Postby Sesquipod » Tue Dec 06, 2016 10:49 am

I am a big fan of Everything and use it every day. It is useful to be able to limit searches to audio, picture, etc, but I tend to forget that I have set a filter and am puzzled when I subsequently can't find a file I know must be there. Finally I remember to check the Search menu and undo the filter. Would it be possible to make the filter setting more obvious than just having it appear in the lower RH corner? Perhaps the word could be highlighted? Or search results appear in different colours depending on the filter?

1. View > Filters
2. Tools > Options > Home tab > Filter: ==> Everything

Also check the right part of the status bar as it will list anything that is effecting the search results.
