In Windows 2000/XP the default file manager has a sidebar search:

I like to see something similar integrated in PCManFM.

  • In fact, something similar is integrated into PCManFM already. Go to main menu -> Tools -> Find Files.
    Thank you very much.

    That's an external dialog. That's not the same as having the search in the sidebar.

    You marked them falsely as "Invalid". Please fix that.

     
  • I'm afraid that all the rich options that are available in pcmanfm will not fit into small space of sidebar. It's main reason why the search options are opened as a separate window. If you have another idea then feel free to reopen the request. Thank you very much.
