Local files and folders

You've asked for it, and it's here! Command E now helps you quickly find and open all of your files and folders right on your computer. 💯


Command E supports finding and opening local files from the following user folders, and all of their subfolders

  • Desktop
  • Documents
  • Downloads
  • Music
  • Pictures
  • Movies

You can also customize the list of folders that can be searched - visit the Search Directories page under Settings (gear icon in upper right on our main search screen).

To enable local file searching:

  1. Go to "Preferences" in Command E (under the gear icon in the top right)
  2. Click the checkbox next to "Enable local file search"
  3. If you're on a Mac, you'll be prompted to confirm access permissions for required folders
  4. And you're done. 🙌
