      In Ribbon Mode with a folder comparison already started, click on ribbon tab Home on Set Compare Options (second icon from left).

      In Toolbar/Menu Mode with a folder comparison already started, click in menu Session on Session properties.

      In edit field Ignore folders/file types specify the file extensions of those files to ignore on folder comparison like *.bak;*.tmp;~*.*

      Click on bottom left corner on button OK and Run.

      It is also possible to specify a default Ignore folders/file types used for each new folder comparison.

      In Ribbon Mode click on ribbon tab Home on Settings (top item on right side).

      In Toolbar/Menu Mode click in menu Option on Configuration.

      At Ignore Options - Folder/Folder Sync there is also Ignore folders/file types.

        I am using OS X (Mac) and UltraCompareX version 17.

        The separator character is a comma (not a semi colon as it might be in Windows)

        Here is an example that works for me for various situations for "Ignore folders/file types: "

        *.txt, .DS_Store, DMSmith, Matrix*, Bill Payments,

        This will ignore any file with txt extension
        it will ignore the system folders named .DS_Store
        it will ignore a folder (or a file) named DMSmith
        it will ignore a folder with a name beginning with Matrix
        it will ignore a file with a name beginning with Matrix
        It will ignore a folder with the name Bill Payments (note it has a space in the folder name)
