Copy a List of selected Files as Text from the Find-Files Windows

It is rely a pain to use e.g ClipX-Tool to save a History of Clipboard and extract File-Names.

Everything is great at finding files (names, in particular).

I'll often drop to a prompt (from within Salamander) & use EGO.bat (Everything GO) to find files in a particular tree.

Code: Select all

:: EGO.BAT (Everything Go)
:: From a command prompt, open a new Everything window, searching the current directory, for an (optional) search term:
:: SjB 05/31/2017


START  C:\DEV\Locate\Everything.exe  -newwindow  -path "%cd%"  -search "%1"

Multiple ways to copy file (names) from within Everything.
Tools | Options | Keyboard, filter (Show commands containing) on 'copy'.
And you can assign hotkeys to the (various) copy functions.

I use:
F6, Full name
F5, Path
F12, Name


(I may have even noted a User Menu function... here, Shortcut to search in current folder.)


So two tools to accomplish what you want, a little extra work.
But they're both great, both worth having.
