History Settings

Top  Previous  Next


History settings control which information FileLocator Pro remembers about previous searches.




To clear the current history click the 'Clear History...' button. To clear the history every time FileLocator Pro exists check the 'Clear all history on exit'.




Options settings

When checked FileLocator Pro restores options settings from the last FileLocator Pro session, such as expression type, match case settings etc.

Window size

When checked FileLocator Pro restores the Window positioning from the last FileLocator Pro session.

Column sort order

When checked FileLocator Pro remembers the column sort order between searches.

Load last search on startup

When checked FileLocator Pro loads, on startup, the criteria used for the last successful FileLocator Pro search. This option effectively overrides the 'Options settings' since the last search will include all the options.


Maximum List Sizes



Search Navigation

The maximum number of searches shown in the search navigation list. Searches are not remembered across FileLocator Pro sessions so the list is always initially empty.

Drop Down Lists

The maximum number of items shown in the criteria drop down list boxes, e.g. File name, Containing text, and Look in. These items are remembered across FileLocator Pro sessions so the list from the previous session will be used to initialize the list of the new session.

Recent Files

The number of files shown in the Recent Files list on the File menu.
