Find picture files?

Post by *Naff47 » 2019-07-03, 18:40 UTC

Hi everyone!
I'm a total newbie to Total Commander but have recently started using it because it seems to be better at copying large files to my hard drive than Windows Explorer.

I have come in to some trouble though. Usually in Windows to find picture files in a folder I would search with kind:=picture but that does not work in Total Commander. How do I go about doing the same thing in Total Commander?

Many thanks.

In fact Explorer uses file extensions predefined under registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\KindMap
Here is how this looks im my system

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

So, now you can define search in TC with extensions defined as picture, or use own.
Press ALT+F7, type all these extensions

Code: Select all

*.3ds *.a11 *.accountpicture-ms *.ai *.ani *.anm *.art *.arw *.avcs *.b&w *.b_w *.b1n *.b8 *.bga *.bit *.bld *.bm *.bmp *.cdf *.cdr *.cgm *.cmp *.cps *.cr2 *.crw *.cvs *.dcx *.dib *.dip *.dkb *.dng *.dw2 *.dwg *.emf *.eps *.erf *.fh3 *.fh4 *.fit *.flc *.fli *.gcd *.gif *.gl *.gsd *.heic *.heics *.heif *.heifs *.hrf *.hs2 *.hsi *.iax *.ica *.icb *.ico *.jas *.jff *.jfif *.jif *.jpc *.jpe *.jpeg *.jpg *.jtf *.jxr *.kdc *.lbm *.mpt *.mrw *.nc *.nef *.neo *.nrw *.orf *.pano *.pct *.pcx *.pda *.pdd *.pds *.pef *.pgm *.pic *.pix *.png *.ppm *.psd *.pse *.qdv *.raf *.raw *.rgb *.rif *.rip *.rix *.rl4 *.rl8 *.rle *.rw2 *.rwl *.sg1 *.sr2 *.srw *.tif *.tiff *.van *.vda *.vdr *.wdp *.wmf *.xbm *.xif *.xpm 
and save your search as e.g. "Pictures"
You can add your extensions as explorer does not search for, e.g: JP2, MNG, PSP, XCF files.
