    Interesting. I just filtered 2 different ways (-*.$$$, which tells some people what editor I use).

    The first way was, in folder view, select Session Menu->File filters, and type *.$$$ in the exclude pane.
    "-*.$$$" shows in the filter slot of the toolbar.

    The second way was to go into Tools->Options, and under Folder View add a line to the filters (it worked just to type it in there..."All but $$$ (-*.$$$)" Then the toolbar filter slot included "All but $$$" in the dropdown.

    Perhaps you can tell us more of how you were trying to do the filtering before you found "exclude".

    If you place the filter -Thumbs.db in the Filters: toolbar, it should hide the thumbs file from the display and from comparison results.

    If you still see Thumbs.db listed after entering the filter, make sure View|Suppress Filters is not on. You can also filter out the file by right clicking on it and selecting Exclude.

    simple question - filter out "thumbs.db"

    I'm sick of thumbs.db files showing up as changes. But the filter never seems to stop them! I've tried putting in -thumbs.db;-*.db;-thumbs* with no avail. Help appreciated.
Working...
