0.99.1: Hidden file search doesn't work

Post by stevehero »

Even though Show hidden files & folders is checked in the File list settings the find files doesn't find them.

Perhaps a separate checkbox in the Find dialog would be a good solution?

Just updated my portable version and searched for filenames that are hidden and it doesn't come back with any results.

It works here, do you have 'Show hidden files & folders' on?
On windows 10, i hide some files and search

Tested again.

The recurse through subfolders doesn't work, at least for me. I think that was why I had no results in testing.

Here you go. Inside that other folder is another hidden file. It only finds the root folder one.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
