This dialog allows you to narrow down the list of displayed files. For example you can display only JPEG photos by clicking on the View Filter icon on the Filename heading banner and choose Filename containing .jpg. Another way to display this dialog is to choose Filter Files on the View menu. The command operates on the current scan results and should take a fraction of a second or, in case of a very large file list, a few seconds. Clearing the filter restores the original file list.
A question mark matches any single character. An asterisk matches any series of characters. For example:.
??data.doc matches mydata.doc but not odata.doc nor yourdata.doc.
*data.doc, however, matches all three filenames.
