Home Page Help

Post by void » Sun Jun 16, 2013 10:08 am

What is Home Page?
The Home Page specifies the search and search settings to use when showing or creating an Everything search window.

What are the requirements for the Home Page?
Requires "Everything" version 1.3.3.653b or later.

How do I change the home page settings?
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Home tab.
What happened to the remember last search option?
It has been replaced with the search setting in the "home page".

To remember the last search:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Home tab.
  • Change Search: to Use last value.
  • Click OK.
What happened to the ini setting: auto_connect?
It has been replaced with the index setting in the "home page".

To auto connect to an ETP server:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Home tab.
  • Change the index to ETP server.
  • Type in the ETP server host and select the desired link type.
  • Click OK.

Thanks for keeping up with the date , David. Lots of new interesting features.....Way to go MAN!

Home page essentially means "close" and "Open" the window? This one works fine.
I also tried the bookmark route , where I created "home" ,kept "OFF" all the checkbox options. I tried adding a few modifiers like wholeword ,case. Clicking home from bookmark , erases the search but the modifiers remain...

Basically, when you open a search window, the home page will determine what the starting search will be, and what search options to use.

The bookmark seems to remember "match path"eventhough it is disabled as I mentioned in the previous post.

Is Remember match path checked and match path unchecked for your home bookmark?

Ok Thanks! That seemed to have solved that.
But with due humility does it not contradict "remember" . What I thought presumably was "Remember" WWord brings back WW modifier if it was used (or Not if it was not used) before pressing "Home" and the compulsory "Match WW"will bring it up even if did not exist in the previous search. Both the columns which I thought were independent are acting in tandem.

If remember is unchecked, then that setting is not saved to the bookmark.
When you open the bookmark, settings that are not remembered are left unchanged.

That is why you are seeing match path left enabled when opening a bookmark.

there are some aspects that i don't understand concerning 'home' feature:

let's say i have 'roxette' entry in search edit
if i press alt+home (go to home), search edit gets blank (according to my settings)
it's not that important but is there a way to restore that 'roxette' ?

i thought that options ---> keyboard ---> view ---> go to ---> back does it but it's not
my impression is that both 'go to back' and 'go to forward' do nothing in 1.3.3.656
apparently i just failed to comprehend their function

i'm also a bit surprised that main menu ---> view ---> go to only contains 'home' but lacks 'back' and 'forward'

The Back and Forward become active if you have at least 2 searches without closing the window.The search history is added there only if you press enter after you type what you search for or use the drop down list of old searches(Tools=>Options=>General=>History)

Alt+Home uses what you set in Tools=>Options=>General=>Home=>Search
If It's "Use last value",it won't do anything,if you use custom,it will search for what you set there

Also please note search history must be enabled from Tools -> Options -> Search History for View -> Goto -> Back / Forward to function.
