The code you posted is for ES.exe, the command=line tool.
If you want to "translate" that to Everything GUI, that would become:

Code: Select all

files: count:10
You have to sort the results manually (click on the header of the result list) or ..
Create a bookmark (Menu:Bookmarks) to do this all at once. Don't forget to enable "remember search" and remeber sort"

(I hope I understood your question correctly..)

there was a missing part in the search pattern:

Code: Select all

size: count:10 files:

To get it, I did:
1. First, sort results by size.
2. Then, to filter results to the first 10 items:

Code: Select all

count:10
@void
I don't have count: in Menu: Help > Search Syntax (v877)
