everything_efu_explorer is "feature request ware". I hope the Everything developer likes it and makes these features native.Wishlist
I wish Everything had a hotkey to change the window background color, to signal that efu browse mode is started. The Everything.ini file has a normal_background_color variable but edits to the ini only have effect when Everything is closed, so that can't be used to quickly toggle a background color on/off.BackgroundEverything
is a very fast file and folder search engine - a great program! It can save search results to .efu file lists
for later use.
When a .efu file is loaded Everything lists all files/folders in the index matching the search string. But it can be useful to browse a drive index folder by folder, like when navigating through folders in Explorer. That is what Everything Efu Explorer enables. This makes it more convenient to use Everything as a cataloger for offline drives or discs.efu_make - a companion script to automatically save drive indexes to .efu file list files. 180223
