Greetings oxman,

The good news for xplorer2 users is that you can easily edit the registry and use whatever search utility you want.

Here's what you'll need to do...   -navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2
                                                -find szExtFindFiles and modify the entry by inputting the Everything location.

In my case, I have C:\Program Files\Locate\Locate32.exe there because I sometimes do offline searches on an external HD. After this small registry edit you should be able to click on xplorer2's Find icon and launch Everything (or other preferred search tool). I just checked with Everything, and it works for me.

Regards.

Hi,

there exists a plugin for Total Commander which supports Everything as well as Locate32:

Download:

I have used it myself, but my personal preference is to use Everything & Locate32 with customized buttons, for which I have made a drop-down button bar called search.bar:

[Buttonbar]
Buttoncount=20

Sorry to say, but I don't understand the question here. Could oxman (or somebody) please rephrase or elaborate on what is wanted.

Repeating the exact same phrase with emphasis did not help to clarify the issue. Thanks.
