ed: and ev: are TC specific and can't be found in the Everything help of course !

oh... might be now I got you
ed: ev: is not everything parameters, its special TC parameters that allow us to use "everything search parameters" like content: file: folder: et. , am I right ?
Exactly! :)

Btw, I have updated "10. Searching file contents ('Everything' -> content:)" and more (e.g. links) above.

sorry for bothering and for misunderstanding. I thought all parameters with : at the end are everything parameters. Now I understood that ed/ev are TC parametrs , but I cant understand if TC has some more parameters
F1 in TC doesnt return anything related with that question

No, as far as I know, there are NO further parameters concerning Total Commander <-> 'Everything'-Integration,
which are available for searches in Total Commander using 'Everything' provided by the author for this purpose.

However, I am beginning to wonder why I took the trouble to give you a list upstairs, where you can find help,
because in the HISTORY.TXT it would have been easy to find ALL THE INFORMATION you need to 'Everything' yourself.
(18 lines should not be too much to read)
F1 - Help ... Dialog box: Search: General wrote: Put "ev:" in front of the search string to pass it to Everything unchanged.
            You will then have to use the Everything search syntax, see www.voidtools.com.
Put "ed:" in front of the search string: Like "ev:", but search only in the directories specified in the "Search in" field.
            Also handles "Search subdirectories" option.
            This is handled by prefixing path:c:\path and optionally parents:<nr to the entered search string.
Everything: ...
F1 - Help ... What's new in this version? wrote:Search yourself for: ed: ev:
If no further Total Commander commands are listed in the HISTORY.TXT or F1-Help, then there are none!
I hope we have finally been able to clarify this.

Yes.
'ed:' and 'ev:' just tells TC to forward everything after them to 'Everything'.
