How to search in all subfolders?

Post by mrwul »

Browser, at the top folder is set, for example: X:\Photos
In the search box some regex term.

It will show the photos according to the regex but only in \Photos

How to have XnViewMP (1.6.4) search thru all the sub folders as well?

Thanks.

"Quick filter" (previous name = quick search) works only on displayed files in the browser.
So a solution is to use "View>Show files in subfolders" ...
But if your X:\Photos contains thousands of photos, it will not be efficient.
You can use "Search" function instead... wich offers "récursive" option.
