search "Everything but .lnk"

Post by hispalo » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:47 am

Hi, I´m a new and very enthusiastic user of Everything and I´d like to suggest something. A new option for the search menu consisting in search everything except files with .lnk extension. Until now I do this including "!.lnk" alongside the others items I´m searching for, but I think it would be great have this as a built-in option. Thank you.

Pay attention that using Exclude, will exclude all .lnks from the index (=database), so that you won't be able to find any .lnk later.

You might look at a Filter solution.
Enable
View > Filters

Search > Manage Filters...
Add NEW filter
Search:

Code: Select all

!ext:lnk;url
For using this filter as default behaviour, choose it in
Options > Home (tab)

This solution doesn't work for me in 1.4.1.895 (x64)

If I search for lnk, *.lnk, or !.lnk in the search window, I get the wished results.

But when I use these entries as a filter, they have no effect. What can I do?
