I am using it as convenient sub filter to the machine filter. I set the machine filter to only the machines I want to see by default.

If I select something in the quick filter, I am shown only the system(s) I want at that time out of the default list made by the machine filter. So if I temporarily only want to see N64 or MAME or something else I can now (thanks to your new feature) see only that. But normally, I want everything in my default list shown, so I then need to select all the systems in the quick filter.


What I did before you added the quick filter was if I temporarily only wanted to play only a specific console, I would do a category search by system name, then when I was done I could quickly clear it and return to my normal default list with the reset filter button. This is part of the reason why I originally assumed the reset in the quick filter would do something similar. This method was far quicker than checking and unchecking individual system boxes in the machine filter dialog. Now your quick filter makes this even quicker, but is also why I was looking for a quick reset to default there as well.

I don't mean to waste your time. This is probably getting more into the weeds then it's worth. LOL It's fine, and I am thankful for the new feature.
