Please make sure you exit "Everything" completely when changing the Everything.ini file.

I found a little "cheat" to do this.
Use Everything to find the everything.ini file. Then right click to copy the name and path. Close everything (RC icon and exit).
Then open Notepad and click File, Open and in the File Name paste the previously copied name.
Edit what you want and save it. Next time you open Everything it will have your changes.
