filter timeout

This is my first post on the forum.

My question is in regards to the File Filter. Is there a setting that will time-out the file filter? I would like to stop filtering automatically after a given period of time, like say 5 minutes, and revert to showing all files. Just wondering if there is a setting for this?

No, you have to turn it off manually. Interesting idea, though.

Yes, it would be a nice feature. I have a problem in that I don't always notice my filtering is on. I have set the text in the address bar to turn red, but it is not noticeable enough for me. I would like to see the timer feature, but would settle for a way to make the fact that I am filtering more noticeable.

When I use the Quick Filter feature, I have set it to change the entire pane bright red. I never miss that. So... I can extend my original question, and ask if there are ways to make the filtering more noticeable, similar to the quick filter capability?

Interesting idea on filters.
If it is done, there ought to be a dropdown or such for the length of the timeout, with the topmost choice as "never".
