How to search only .exe files?
« on: January 11, 2018, 03:32 AM »
Possible to make FARR search only .exe files, or .doc, or any other specified file extension?

just add the ".exe" to the search as a separate word, or whatever extension you are looking for.

Wow ! I never knew I could do that, all these years of using FARR  :Thmbsup:

Do we have a "Like" button for a message ? It would be good as some forums allow to like a message. Also "Bookmark" a message.

Regards,

Anand

Under the "Mark Topic" button at the top and bottom of a thread you can bookmark the thread and do other things like this.

Thanks. Marked it. But it is not the same as I wished.
I want to mark  a specific message and not the full topic which may have many messages. Also same for bookmark, i.e. a specific message is bookmarked for later perusal.
Anyway, this will do, till we have what I require. One more suggestion is to show text as "Mark Topic .." so that we get the idea it has something more. Now it looks like a button for one job.

Anand

We'd talked about this before, and the same was suggested.  I think it would require more coding time when other things are more pressing was the response.
