Everything 1.5 adds an Advanced page to the Everything Options dialog.

All settings can now be adjusted from within the UI.


The advanced options page.
Changing these settings can cause Everything to stop functioning correctly.


Changed settings are shown in bold.

Thank you for the feedback.

Some items have a help tooltip when hovering over the text field for the value.
I'll look into adding more tooltips.

All settings are documented here:
