Searching in Windows Explorer

Post by jussij » Wed Sep 27, 2017 5:59 am

By default when using the search features of Windows Explorer the search results returned are never an exact match.

However, you can use search filters to change the behaviour of the search, including exact match results.

Below are some examples of how you can control the search results:
  • Searching for debug will return everything with debug in any searchable meta-data
  • Searching for Name:debug returns everything with debug in the name
  • Searching with Name:=debug returns only those entries with names exactly matching debug
  • Searching for Extension:=.cpp returns any file with the .cpp file extension

You can also search for items of a given size:

Code: Select all

size: >= 128mb
Or use the one of the predefined size size ranges.

Code: Select all

Empty   : 0kb files
Tiny    : 0-10kb
Small   : 10-100kb
Medium  : 100kb-1mb
Large   : 1mb-16mb
Huge    : 16mb-128mb
Gigantic: larger than 128mb
For example searching for Huge files can be done as follows:

Code: Select all

size: >= Huge
