Ability to limit what extensions are returned
« on: February 05, 2007, 04:33:51 PM »
I would like a way to limit what extensions are returned in the results list. This could be a new tab or even a rule where you can add/remove extensions which show up at will. This way, only the results which are relevant are returned and you dont get DLL's in the list (which still appear if you add a negative score to those extensions). I find myself only using EXE, LNK, XLS, and folders and as such, would love a way to limit to those extensions.

What do you all think? Mousey said he wouldnt add this unless others wanted it too! SO PLEASE, BE MY FRIEND!

according to the help file, if you give a score -9999, it won't appear again..

to exclude the extensions quickly, just right-click on the extension when it appears on the results pane & choose either of the top 2 item..

i think i will add this, only because i can do it more quickly with a special extensions only filter.
