Ok, I just need Total Commander 'quick search' feature to be enabled. How can I do it?


Go to Options > Layout and disable Command prompt. You'll get the desired behavior.

  • Awesome. Unfortunately it only searches the beginning of the name. – TheStoryCoder Sep 21 '17 at 13:14

Alt+S will show the "quick search" in Midnight Commander.

  • Thanks! Can I turn this on by default (so I won't need to press extra Alt-S to begin searhing and maybe another key combiantion to focus on command line)? – jonny Mar 10 '10 at 14:16
  • Glad it helped you out, i don't have a clue on how to enable it by default though. – S.Hoekstra Mar 10 '10 at 16:50
  • Is there a way to make this case insensitive? – Gaurav Mar 7 '19 at 7:22
