5.7. Everything Package¶
Available since version 2.3
Query Everything (a separate tool) from Keypirinha to find and open any file or folder.
Everything v1.3 or more recent must be running to do a search.
This package retries to find Everything instance each time you want to do a search so you can freely (re)start Everything whenever you need to.
5.7.2. Catalog Items¶
By default, this package populates the Catalog with the following items:
Everything: Searchitem (default name) allows to query Everything using its normal search syntax
Everything: Regex Searchitem (default name) allows to query Everything using its regular expression syntax
Everything: Rebuild DBitem request Everything to rebuild its database (requires Everything v1.4).
To query Everything from Keypirinha allows you to take advantage of both Everything’s speed and Keypirinha’s matching algorithm. Once you have searched-found-executed a file/folder using this package, it is kept in Keypirinha’s history so you do not have to query Everything a second time to open it.
You can reduce the number of keystrokes even more to reach the same item by using the Associate a Keyword to an Item feature.
Remember you can drag the resulting items the same way you would drag files to/from the Windows Explorer, in order to copy files or create shell links for example. See the Drag and Drop section for more info.
