Bumping this 4-6 year old thread because for some reason this feature was never added. Listary, in fact, does not search and show results for the current directory first. In fact, it just searches and lists results randomly from all 7 of my drives, in no real particular order. We still need a hotkey for searching the current directory ONLY, barring ALL RESULTS from anything but the current folder and sub-folders.
Unfortunately, Windows search is so useless, It can’t find every file in a specific directory using the keyword “Default”, and trying to search the word “Default” with Listary brings up too many results for it to display, as it won’t show results for the folder I’m currently in. I’m resorting instead to using the software called “Everything” to accomplish finding anything with the word “Default” in the name in this directory I’m in, as it contains way too many folders for me to browse manually, and Windows search won’t work, and “Default” is too broad of a term for Listary to handle because it lacks this feature. I highly suggest that program in this specific instance.
" If Listary has a hotkey (
Ctrl+Alt+C for example) to allow you to search only within the current folder, you need to:
So adding such a hotkey would actually take you more time?"
I already have to Double tap CTRL or use my other hotkey combo to conjure Listary, the amount of brain and motor movement operation required to hit 1 additional key on my keyboard would amount to a fraction of a second, and would beat me having to open a completely different program to initiate a manually specified search to accomplish a task that Listary should easily be able to handle.
