Hum, I just had the idea to "browse" a file which doesn't work with Similarity, but with the software I mentioned before (Everything Search)... and it does the same (same symptoms : fail at first try but ok then) !
So the problem might come from my computer, not from Similarity.
Sorry for bothering you !

Thanks for answering
I'm currently using Windows 8.1
As mentioned in my edit, it sometimes works.
I just tried it once again and notice that if I try more than once, it can work for a file which didn't. Sometimes it works at the first try.
I tried on files not hidden and not read-only either.

We already send command to select file in Explorer not just folder.
What Windows version do you use ? Is this files hidden or read-only ?

Dear developers,

I know a software (Everything Search by David Carpenter, very very useful) which has a function similar to the right click on a file in Similarity and "browse".

In Similarity, it only opens the directory which contains the file (among possibly many other files). The suggestion is to do as Everything Search does : when you want to "browse" a file that has been found, it not only opens the directory but selects the file itself. This is a good way not to look for it in the directory.

I hope that I'm clear !


[Edit :] in fact, that might be a bug. For some files it works as suggested ! For others, it behaves like I explained above. Strange !
