exclude folder as find result
« on: July 05, 2007, 11:54:42 PM »
hi..is it possible to exclude folder from being listed in find result because i'd like to see only *.lnk and *.exe as find results..

you can tell farr not to match folders, by unchecking this option:

you can also add really high scores for *.exe and *.lnk patterns in the pattern scoring tab if you really want to favor those kinds of files.

by the way, when you turn off find folders by default option, you can still ask to find folders by adding +\ to your search.
