Search vs. Filter

  Note:   this is a premium feature available to paid Mylio subscribers. Learn more about the benefits of upgrading your Mylio account here.

Mylio allows for two different types of searches to assist in finding the best possible result for your search. The two options are Search and Filter.

  • Search – Runs a search on your entire library. Mylio will search all files for in your library and return any results that match the search term.
  • Filter – Runs a search on the currently open container. Mylio filters the current container for any results that match your filter term.

Searching

  1. Open Mylio and select the Search bar at the top left of the center panel. The left side of the Search bar should show a magnifying glass. This means you’re performing a search.
    1. If you see a funnel, select the funnel and toggle to Search within the Search menu.
  2. Type your search term in the Search bar. Mylio will look in all of your files for the search term. To limit the search to specific fields, add search modifiers.
  3. Mylio will display your results. Use the bar above your results to change between Media, Folders, Albums, People, Events, and Map.

Filtering

  1. Open Mylio and select the search bar at the top of the center panel. The left side of the Search bar should show a funnel. This means you’re performing a filter.
    1. If you see a magnifying glass, select the magnifying glass and toggle to Filter within the Search menu.
  2. Type in your filter term in the Search bar. Mylio will look for media containing the search term within the container you’re in. For example, if you’re currently in an album, Mylio will filter your results to just results found within the album. To limit the filter to specific fields, add search modifiers.
  3. Mylio will display your results.
