Can I search a full or partial file path as well as filename using regex in filename box?

An example - I would like to search for all files containing a 'q' in the filename portion, that has a directory path with 'temp' found somewhere in the path. Such as:


Is it possible to search for this in the filename box? If not, is there another way to achieve it?

Thank you.

Yes, you would do something like:

File name:       q
Containing Text:
Look In:         C:\;+temp

The +temp says that the path must have 'temp' somewhere in it.

Conversely you could do -temp to say that it must NOT have 'temp' in the path.
