Let me revive this thread then, no point in posting the very same thing i a new thread.

Its on again at BitsDuJour. The Pro and the Ultimate edition. Links from the OP below are still valid.

I have been using xplorer² for years now. Since i don´t have a lifetime license i am still on version 2. And to be honest v3 has no feature that i really absolutely need at this point in time but for the half price i just swept in and bought a new license anyway.   :)

Xplorer2 pro is one of the best file manager for Windows, if you ask me.  :P
It's not often discounted, but now it is 51% off!  :-*

The link is here :

If you are anything like me and collect desktop icons like nothing else in the world ... i definately recommend getting the first tier of the bundle with Fences.

Especially at work im piling up stuff on my desktop (less program links but often all kind of files) . And for 1$ its a no brainer for me    ;)

Thank you very much mouser ... this is what i needed    :Thmbsup:

but the outcome seems less than usable -- files you expect to be found are not found.
for example if you search for "firefox" it won't find "Mozilla Firefox".

This would have been already perfect for me i guess because the way i use this function is

- alternate mode initiated with a different hotkey
- limited to just 20-50 aliases i define especially for that mode
- and more importantly i just know the exact word i want it to execute something on. So in these clean defined aliases i would never search for "Firefox" by Mozilla to keep your example.
  I would always type Firefox. I would always type "Word", "Excel", "Powerpoint" and never "Microsoft Word"

The outcome being less than useable for you was because you were using it in the default search bar and not in a secondary one especially for this if i guess correctly.
Which leads me to think this is why this might not be perfect for (most?) other users yet.

Don´t get me wrong ... at this point i am happy since i got what i needed to do what i wanted. I am really thankfull that you added this and the way you did it works well for me. End of story. So thank you very much!.

However (ah there he goes again ...) thinking about how you ended up modifying your first attempt because you found it less than usable got me thinking:  There might be some added value if these settings were not (only) global but instead could be used as "Special search modifiers" like +sall and the others.
That way any user wanting this only in some cases like me (albeit for me its the primary way) could still retain the full power of the "normal" search. Since you already have the mechanisms in place (different hotkeys and modifiers) i would guess its not to far away. Just a thought. Again personally i am a happy camper already the way it is now  ;-)

Since you were recently mentioning further releases ... any chance something along the lines of that force matching the first letter(s) might sneak in there?     ;)

Yeah, there's currently no way to force it to match the first letter -- though that's an interesting idea..

Lets keep the show moving ...   :)
