Setting Everything for a Single Extension

Post by hasantr » Tue Sep 10, 2019 6:30 am

I'm only interested in finding TXT files. Do not see files other than TXT. Can I arrange this? He needs to ignore other extensions when indexing. I know this can be done while searching. But that's not what I want. Thanks.

To search for only txt files, search for:
*.txt

-or-

ext:txt

To index only txt files:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Change Include only files to:
    *.txt
  • Click OK.
-or-

Create a filter to only show txt files:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters....
  • Change Name to:
    txt files
  • Change Search to:
    ext:txt
  • 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.

Thank you for your early reply.
This is great. I've been using Everthing for a long time. But I couldn't do it.
