1.) Adjusting the file search with file filter settings!
Just start the program and customize the file filter according to your needs.
For example, you only want to search for Office documents that end with doc and xls Use the filter
"*.xls;*.doc" and start the file search for relevant Office documents from Word and Excel here in the example. However!
If you want to search on the C:\ drive and want to exclude text files txt and rtf , just use "*.txt;*.rtf"
in the exclusion filter

2.) Exclude, include, filter program parameters!
If you like to work with program arguments, you can use the program arguments (start parameters) from version 5.25 to search with the program for a specific Windows directory and at the same time search for files only from exclude and include filter rules!
dir = folder or d = folder
exclude = Exclude or e = Exclude
Include = Exclude or i = Include
Simple searching for files last filter is used!
Simple searching for files include file filter
meinplatz.exe dir=C:\Windows include=*.dll;*.exe;* exclude=""
Simple searching for files exclude file filter
meinplatz.exe dir=D:\SearchFolder1 include="" exclude=*.dll;*.exe;*
For file search with spaces (use exclamation mark)
meinplatz.exe dir="C:\Search Folder X" include="Include filter"
3.) What should I note in the file search with file filter!
For example, if you specify in the program that only to be searched for *.doc, it is superfluous that you use an exclusion filter for files that it is anyway in this case only searched for Office document with the file extension doc.
Using the exclude and include filters as program arguments is really very easy to filter out certain files in the search or to exclude certain files.
Exclude = excluded (files that do not meet these file filters)
Include = shoot (only files that match these file filters)
