Main QuickJump window¶
The main QuickJump window is designed to help you find any Windows folder with just a few keystrokes.
When you find a folder, you can:
- Open it in Windows Explorer.
- Change folder in a “File Open” or “Save As” dialog of most Windows Applications.
- Copy the path to the Clipboard.
- Run Custom Commands on that folder.
- Advanced: Send path as text to a console application, so you can use it in a shell command.
Advanced folder filtering operators¶
QuickJump supports the following search operators to perform more advanced filtering.
Operators prefix a search term with a special token, such as
Exclude operator (not:)¶
Prefix a search term with
not: to exclude folders from the list.
clients not:archived shows all folders which include the
clients, but not
archived in the folder path.
Name-only match operator (name:)¶
Prefix a search term with
name: to match only the folder name itself
and not its path.
name:clients would match
M:\Docs\Clients, but not
Main window options¶

Create Subfolder Button¶
