searching for multiple files
« on: December 02, 2010, 05:43:27 PM »
Hi.
I'm trying to convert my coworker to FARR, and he wont switch away from "Effective File Search" unless he can search for multiple files at the same time.

I've never seen mention of that feature in FARR.

Is it in there somewhere?

For example:

search for
all files containing
q0998989 or v897987987
in one fell swoop?

Thx

It's not possible in FARR and not likely to be..

I think the correct answer to your coworker is that they shouldn't stop using Effective File Search to search for documents.

FARR isn't really meant to replace general purpose file/document finders.  It is meant to very quickly find and launch applications and let you customize a wide variety of additional super-quick-efficient search-like actions.

Show them this video screencast, and if they don't see a use for FARR after watching it, then they are too far gone to save :)

I should change the shortcut for his favorite program so that it launches FARR anyway
