What is the child: function?
The child function allows you to search for folders containing a subfolder or file with the specified filename.

For example, to display all the folders on your computer that contain an mp3 file:

Code: Select all

child:*.mp3


You can also find folders that are missing a file type, for example, search for folders in c:\music that do not contain an mp3 file:

Code: Select all

folder: c:\music\ !child:*.mp3
What are the requirements for the child: function?
Requires "Everything" version 1.3.3.653b or later.

Wonderful! I made a search "child:.mp3" and added a mp3 file to a new unlisted folder. It did not update immediately nor on pressing "F5".

This function does not update real-time for performance reasons.

You will need to change the search to update the results.
