Everything v1.4.1.935 Updated

billon on 18 Feb 2019
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Feb 2019
  • Suggested by Drutt

Everything is a powerful search tool that locates files and folders by file name instantly, and includes an FTP and Web server interface. It also can search files by their contents. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays all files and folders on your computer. You simply type in part of the desired file name to limit what files and folders are displayed instantly. The more you type, the more specific the list becomes.

Note that the instant-search capability only works on NTFS/ReFS-formatted drives and only uses file and folder names in a file index. The program can separately catalog non-NTFS/ReFS and network servers for searching on a schedule.

In case it does not remembers sort order, you have to edit 2 lines in Everything.ini:

sort=Type
always_keep_sort=1

@bitcoin: if you're looking to minimize editor memory footprint, take a look at the likes of AkelPad, editor2 & win32pad. Also, take a look at this forum topic: https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22061 ...

If you want small startup time, good one is CudaText, starts fast, less exe size.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

IanFromBarrie on 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

@IanFromBarrie

Thanks for that info. I was wondering why it wasn't working with XP. Renaming todolist.exe.xp.manifest to todolist.exe.manifest worked.

Care to share your launchers, CornHolio? Please post at the forum thread...

CornHolio the Gringo on 2018-02-09 18:36

I have now tested MiTeC_Icon_Explorer_5.0.1, and can confirm that
Icon_Explorer_5.0.1 did not write to registry, only OS did.

CornHolio the Gringo on 2018-03-13 06:32

I have to point out that if "persistent layout" in preferences are set, then
Icon Explorer writes to Registry.

Have to mention that MiTec also make Network Scanner (atm v4.4.0) which
makes a Netscanner.ini file in Your profile under AppData\Roaming\MiTeC\Network Scanner,
if one set the equal setting in preferences.
