Occasionally, there are too many folders in the search results, which makes it take more time to find the files we need. The purpose of 'everything' is that most of the time it is to find files more efficiently, not folders. I recommend to add a search option to hide the folders. :D :D :D

To search for files only, include the following in your search:
file:

To add a Files Only filter:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters....
  • Change the Name to: Files Only
  • Change the Search to: file:
  • Click OK.
Filters can be activated from the Search menu, Filter bar (View -> Filters), right clicking the status bar, filter macro or filter keyboard shortcut.
