I am trying to define filter for exe files so i go to Define Filter window then click on Add new filter and type .exe but it doesn't work. I think i have to enter something in Include and Exclude fields but i am not sure what.

Thanks, it worked. What filter to use to make it shows only the folders?

why would you use that?

well, I guess I'd filter files by date - using year 2099 and 3000.

I tried to filter by date but it didn't work. I also tried by attributes and selected only Directory but still didn't work.
I am not sure what i have to enter in Include and Exclude fields to filter only folders.

Thanks, that worked. I need this because when i have lot of files and folder that helps me find the file or folder i am looking faster.

I have two more questions:

1. Is it possible to set more than one rule for one entry? For example, i want to filter only the files with extensions .csv and .xlsx.

2. How to set a rule that will filter all folders and leave only the files visible?

Thanks, for the links, but i couldn't find instructions there of how to define filters.

Anyway, i found how to hide only the folders, but i don't know if i can set filter for multiple file extensions.
