General



Syntax

Everything.exe [filename] [-options]
Everything64.exe [filename] [-options]

Middle dashes (-) in command-line options can be omitted.
For example:
-nonewwindow is the same as -no-new-window

Use double quotes to escape spaces and switches.
For example, set the search to: foo bar
Everything64.exe -s "foo bar"

Use ^ to escape \ & | > < ^
For example, set the search to: foo|bar
Everything64.exe -s foo^|bar

Use """ to escape a literal "
For example, set the search to: "foo bar"
Everything64.exe -s """"foo bar""""
(Remember to also escape spaces with double quotes)

Use -- to disable switch parsing
For example, to set the search to -a-filename-starting-with-a-dash.txt
Everything64.exe -- -a-filename-starting-with-a-dash.txt

Use a trailing * after a command line option to treat the rest of the command line as literal.
For example:
Everything64.exe -folders* [{"path":"c:\\first path","subfolders":1},{"path":"c:\\second path","subfolders":1}]



filename

Search for the specified file or folder by filename.
This is the same action as dropping a file on an Everything search window.

For control over how the filename is formatted, please see:
hdrop_filelist
hdrop_folder_format
hdrop_folder_append_path_separator
hdrop_file_format
hdrop_shortcut_target
