Hide parent folder path from 'Path' column items during folder search

Post by iamMG » Mon Dec 10, 2018 7:22 pm

I have been using Everything for quite some time now and absolutely love it. I have been feeling slight inconvenience and made an account here just for this.
When searching within a particular folder (using double quotations), the entire path is displayed in the 'Path' column of search results.
This causes hindrance when looking for the subfolder to which a search result item belongs to. For example:

What I suggest is this:
In such cases, only the parent folder should be shown in the 'Path' column, or its subfolders. Maybe an ellipsis (...) can be used before the path. Double-clicking on the path would behave the same as before. Something like:
Image

What I request is that at least an option should be made available to be able to switch between the two layouts.

I have on my TODO list an option to enable path ellipsis, which would show:
C:\Users\lenovo\AppData\Local\Lenovo\IMController\...\CustomCache
C:\Users\lenovo\AppData\Local\Lenovo\IMController\PluginData...\1

Thanks for the suggestion.

When you hover the mouse over the path, you will see the complete path.

Thanks for noticing. Glad to help. I hope to see it in action in a future release.
