I'd suggest a solution which is as comfortable like the original Windows search.
- You have an explorer window open at C:\temp\blabla\
- You press a hotkey defined by yourself (e.g. CTRL+SHIFT+F)
- Everything should open with a search filter "C:\temp\blabla\" already applied.
A trailing space and the cursor at the very end of the line should be provided to make instant typing of further keywords possible.
In Windows systems a similar function is pressing CTRL+F, so in a sense it should work as a replacement for that.
Why is it more comfortable?
It's breaking my workflow to always
- switch one hand to the mouse and
- go up one folder,
- search the folder I was in,
- right click it,
- left click "search with Everything",
- switch hand back to the keyboard and
- start typing my keywords
- ctrl+f (or user defined hotkey) and
- start typing.
I don't know if that is possible, it's just a suggestion.
We already tried to find a workaround solution, but failed so far.
