Increase undo buffer?

Undo seems to only allow one undo, then undo'ing again reverts.
Is there a way to use multiple undos by increasing the undo buffer/history?
Thanks!

What are you trying to undo?

I want to undo text entries in the search form.

For example, the way it works now, I can type in the filename of an MP3 to find it, delete the search, type the name of the MP3 player, run the MP3 player, hit undo, and the MP3 filename comes up to add to the player.

But I want to go further back than just to the previous search.

I may be wrong, but i don't think Undo is being handled by everything. Whats now working is default windows behaviour (like in notepad, run box, etc.,).

Please try enabling search history:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the History tab on the left.
  • Check Enable search history.
Use Alt + Left and Alt + Right to back and forward through search history.
Press Ctrl + Shift + H to show all Search history.

Searches are added to your search history when you perform an action on a result or press ENTER from the search edit.

Thank you!

Alt + Left and Alt + Right to back and forward through search history will come in handy.

I will just have to get used to hitting ENTER to get the searches to register.

It doesn't explicitly have to be the ENTER key; all options (that I know of) that bring you from the search bar to the result list will work, like TAB, (Cursor) DOWN or a mous eclick in the result list.

I am a little confused about
Use Alt + Left and Alt + Right to back and forward through search history.


In the Help it says alt + up/down

In the Options>keyboards is shows Search All History alt + up/down
Search History blank

Tests show alt + left / right scrolls the history from the current session, alt + up/down all history

So my question is: is my Everything working correctly and is it correct that the Search History in the Keyboard Mapping is blank?

No guarantees, but I think that behaviour is how it should be:
- Alt-Left/Right works like the browser (or file manager) back/forward: session bound.
- My Search History keyboard mapping is also empty ( = Everything's default setting)

Alt + Up and Alt + Down show the search history suggestions based on all search history.
The most used searches will be listed at the top.

Ctrl + Space will show search history suggestions based on the current search.

Alt + Left and Alt + Right are tied to the View -> Goto -> Back / Forward commands.
I call this nav history internally, short for navigation history.
Nav history is identical to search history except it is current session only.

The next version of Everything will add the current search to your search history when pressing Alt + Left or Alt + Right so you don't lose your current search.

The Search History command in the Keyboard setting page is exactly the same as Auto complete search, except it does not auto complete your search when there is only one match, ie: it will always show the search suggestion drop down box.
The Search History command shows search history based on your current search.
