Stupid Question

Post by lotiara » Tue Mar 08, 2016 8:53 am

Sorry this is a stupid question ;)

but every time I got back to everything, the search box is empty, I would like to keep the last search and I don't know how to do it, I'm sure it's a config setting, but can't find it .

Is there a way to look at the search history order by date ?

Thank you for your time.

To remember the last search:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Home tab.
  • Change Search to: Use last value.
  • Click OK.

You'll need the latest beta:
  • Completely exit Everything.
  • Open your %APPDATA%\Everything\Everything.ini
  • Change the following line:

    Code: Select all

    search_history_sort_results=1
    to:

    Code: Select all

    search_history_sort_results=2
  • Save changes and restart Everything.
Search history can also be browsed (by date) from View -> Go To -> Show All History (with the latest beta).
