Looks like Everything isn't helping. If I type "cd fossil" and then select the folder I want (C:\Users\username\Desktop\Projects\fossil) several times (not selecting others), I want that folder to be on top. I don't care if it uses JPSTREE.IDX or Everything. If there's a setting I'm missing, please point it out.
Everything.exe keeps track of how many times you opened a folder or file (it's called run-count).
If you open files or folders from the Everything GUI (everything.exe) you can see that this run-count is incremented (right-click on one of the headers and add Run Count to your view).
You can even set a Runcount manually (by rightclicking on a file) and thus give it another "metric"
The runcount statistics are saved in "Run History.csv", alongside the database.
Communication between TCC and Everything.
Everything --> TCC
At least on my configuration TCC ignores the runcount, just like you saw.
TCC --> Everything
After a choice was made in the dialog box, the chosen file/folder didn't get it's runcount incremented.
Long story short: would be useful to know how EVERYTHING and everything.exe behave on a "normal" system regarding this run count issue..
I don't think the EVERYTHING command can deal with the run-count. I believe that command is modelled on an older, relatively simple version of the voidtools command line utility, ES.EXE, which did not have that capability. The newer ES.EXE is a monster and I doubt TCC will ever incorporate all its capabilities in EVERYTHING.
I don't find much value in the run-count. It only counts opening files from within the Everything GUI.
You can download ES.EXE (source code included) from the voidtools site. Here's it's help; a few options mentioned are obsolete. Further below is a sinple example of its use.

I already played with the newer versions and managed to build a CDD + counter (sorted by counter).
So a CDD temp gives me a list of folders with temp somewhere in the name; the temp folder you visited the most (as in: CDD't to the most) is on top of that list.
I consider that a nice feature. Build it this afternoon, but I think I keep it.
This is exactly why I created this suggestion. The primary "fossil" directory I want to go to (and go to most often) is the one pointed to by the arrow in post #7, not the 15 files and directories above it in the selection box.
