Bummer about Windows. ;(  They must have closed whatever the keystroke trackers used to use, dumping any/all keyboard activity into a text file.

Thank you for the tip on hot_keys_list!

« on: May 26, 2021, 11:43 AM »
As I age (more rapidly than I expected) I find myself forgetting my favorite hotkeys.  Were they defined in the app?  The OS?  In FARR?  AutoHotKey?  And what were they anyway?  Was it alt-q, ctrl-q, alt-shift-Q?  Where do I live?  And was I supposed to go to the bathroom before the meeting started? ;)

So here's my fantasy: I open up an app that tracks all my hotkey uses across devices.  It's got them split up by the app I use them in, sorted by frequency of use (in that app), a reference to where they're defined, and an editable description field for what I once thought they did.

How 'bout it science?  Any takers?

Found it!  So sorry I missed it.

From this thread:

I downloaded tinyev from here:

... and drug the FARR_TinyEv folder into FARR's plugin folder, had FARR reload the plugins, and typed "ev GOGO" and got Everything's results directly in FARR!  Super JAZZED!

Sorry for the spin!

Any help getting Everything's results back into the FARR window?  Naively tweaking some working aliases, the following settings wait for me to finish typing, and then open Everything with (whatever I typed into FARR) placed into the search box:

regexp: ^everything (\S*)
results: everything | C:\Program files\Everything\Everything.exe -search "$$1"

From the original post to this thread in 2012 (Prince still alive, but not Michael Jackson) all I get at the end is Everything opened up with "$$1" in the search box. ;(
regexp: ^(.*)\s\s$
results: dolaunch C:\Program files\Everything\Everything.exe -search "$$1"

Any help greatly appreciated.  Long road so far, but close!

Thank you for your help Nod5!  Looks like something in ScanFs.  It opens, but isn't reflecting any command line args.  I wrote an app just to display the command args, and called it with a search string and a file path, and they look fine.

Thanks a ton!  Will figure out what's happening down stream-
