Recent documents and bookmarks

Post by WarpEnterprises » Wed Apr 17, 2019 11:20 am

Beside Everything I use a (nice) tool which is partly quite similar, so I would like to skip it completely and use only Everything.
It's called "recent document tracker (RDT)".

- it remembers only entries of docs opened
- it does not immediately delete an entry when the target is missing
- you can access different results it via a context menu from the tray icon
- you can pin (set as favorite) entries

In Everthing you can search for *.lnk in ..\recent-folders, there is "run count" and bookmarks.
But no access from tray and no mapping from lnk to file.
So there is not that much missing in Everthing (or I can't find it) - any comments how to achieve above would be nice.

Thanks for the suggestions.
- it remembers only entries of docs opened
Would a search toggle to show only recent docs be useful?
This could be done now with a filter to search your recent docs folder.
Would you prefer the results are the physical file and not the lnk file?
Maybe a simple search function could be useful here, such as inrecentdocs:
- it does not immediately delete an entry when the target is missing
An option to keep deleted files in the index is on my TODO list.
This files could be shown with strike through text.
- you can access different results via a context menu from the tray icon
I'll consider an option to pin files/folders to the tray icon context menu.
- you can pin (set as favorite) entries
I have on my TODO list to add support for pinning files and folders to the Everything taskbar button.
