If possible, a FARR plugin based on this program would be nice.
Just create an alias with Everything's command line.
[copy or print]
^ev(.*)
Everything Search $$1 | C:\program files\everything\Everything.exe -search $$1


Thanks alot edbro Thmbsup That's just perfect.

That is what he tells everyone smiley
He says it's already on his list of things to do  Thmbsup

Hi Curt, Thank you for your reply.

Wow, I am so impressed with your Everything! Next step surely must be to integrate with (replace) Explorer\'s search box just the same way the fine SearchGT does. This is my number one feature request, please!

This is on my "Things to do" list

However, he gave me another important information:

Number two [feature request] must be for you to set up a donate button, even though experience tells that very few will use it.

Any donations would be greatly appreciated and will help with the development of "Everything". I am only giving out my donation information for those that ask: [hint] [link]: [/hint]
Kind regards, David Carpenter

It would be so cool if he really does write such a version!  thumbs up

This was my post # 2345  smiley

Indeed (and congratulations on 2345 - nice  Thmbsup)! Thanks for the PayPal link - I didn't get that "bit" in the note I received from David. I like Everything a lot! Right off to make a donation  smiley

Not sure if I understand what you mean  huh , but opening files and folders in Windows Explorer is the default behavior of Everything.
Just right click on any item of the list and choose "Explore" or "Explore Path". It should open the folder (or the older containing the chosen file) in Windows Explorer.
What I did was modify that behavior so that they open in Total Commander instead  Wink

- oh, it does not use Explorer for anything other than to open files. Hmm... For a second I was thinking it already would use Explorer's search boxes, as we just have been requesting. That would have been a rapid response!!

Hi, do you think it is possible to have files automatically ordered by date, descending?

As things stand right now (all files displayed in the results list when the program starts up) that seems like a pretty bad idea. Just try to sort by date without searching for anything and watch the program freeze up, it's the same delay you would face each time you start the app if it sorted by date as default. It would make sense if the sorting was done by a separate thread and a new search would terminate sort + re-sort.

Ok , I understand the 'sorting by date' issue. I was asking since I can do it with locate32: it seems that result in this case is not sorted afterwards, but "during" the search...

Just create an alias with Everything's command line.
[copy or print]
^ev(.*)
Everything Search $$1 | C:\program files\everything\Everything.exe -search $$1

A small modification to make multiple search phrases carry over from the FARR input box to Everything:

[copy or print]
^ev(.*)
Everything Search $$1 | C:\program files\everything\Everything.exe -search "$$1"

edit 090321: sorry, I meant to quote this post but ended up editing it. I think it is reset to how it previously was now.  embarassed

Hehe! Yeah, I wasn't too kicked about that "leap" in speed. I'm hoping for features like results by category & thumbnail view for images.

Thanks Nosh.

Though I have been using the previous beta version and the "Check for Updates" link said I had the latest - even a few minutes ago. Doesn’t work I guess.

one problem I have had with Everything, and actually with RecentX also, is that they try to index changes in real-time.  If I am copying a large number of files with Directy Opus, or for that matter if I am moving them, archiving them into a zip archive - any file operation that involves large numbers of files - both Everything and RecentX start spinning to update their indices with those changes. On some occasions RecentX is using 40 - 45% CPU and Everything is close behind with 25 - 30%. Throw in a little activity from NOD32 - which apparently wants to see what all the hubbub is about - and Directory Opus can't even get the copying done because there aren't enough CPU resources left for it! of course this delays the entire copy/move/archive process and thus causes both RecentX and Everything to both sit there spinning - and using CPU - waiting for the job to continue.

I usually end up closing or ending processes for both. Wish they had a way to regulate their indexing.

Everything itself has priority settings for its 'Icon Load' and 'Read File Info' threads, both are set to idle by default. 25-30% consumption does seem on the high side, though so I guess the 'Read File Info' is about updating the results list and nothing to do with indexing.

I wish there was a slightly more open way to interact with the author than 1 on 1 emailing.

Here is an AHK script for replacing the current folder search in Explorer (CTRL+F). Why? Because I often use small Explorer windows and the default search sidebar the takes up almost the entire window so using Everything is quicker compared to resizing the explorer window.
[copy or print]
;-- EverythingExplorer ---
;-- replace explorer CTRL+F active folder search with Everything
;-- AHK script by nod5 -- http://nod5.dcmembers.com/
#IfWinActive, ahk_class ExploreWClass
^F::
#IfWinActive, ahk_class CabinetWClass
^F::
WinGet, xid, ID, A
ControlGetText,xpath, Edit1, ahk_id %xid%
run, %A_ProgramFiles%\Everything\Everything.exe -search "%xpath%\ "
return
A problem though: when the path includes spaces, the above does not work. I need to pass a quoted path to Everything. I tried
[copy or print]
""%xpath%\" "
and
[copy or print]
"""%xpath%\"" "
and
[copy or print]
"^"%xpath%\^" "
but that didn't work. Any ideas on how to get it to work?
edit: once the path issue is sorted a similar script could be made to do the searches through FARR via the FARR everything plugin.

edit2:
temporary workaround, with barely noticeable delay:
[copy or print]
;-- EverythingExplorer ---
;-- replace explorer CTRL+F active folder search with Everything
;-- AHK script by nod5 -- http://nod5.dcmembers.com/
#IfWinActive, ahk_class ExploreWClass
^F::
#IfWinActive, ahk_class CabinetWClass
^F::
WinGet, xid, ID, A
ControlGetText,xpath, Edit1, ahk_id %xid%
;run, %A_ProgramFiles%\Everything\Everything.exe -search "%xpath%\ "
run, %A_ProgramFiles%\Everything\Everything.exe
WinWaitActive, ahk_class EVERYTHING
ControlSetText,Edit1,"%xpath%"%A_Space%, ahk_class EVERYTHING
ControlSend,Edit1,{End},ahk_class EVERYTHING
return
