Tip #86

Filter search results in Quick Commands to find exactly what you’re looking for.

To search only a specific category in Quick Commands, you can use a the following keywords in front of the search term to filter out only relevant results:

  • Bookmarks – bookmark:
  • Notes – note:
  • Open and Closed Tabs – tab:
  • Browsing History – history:
  • Commands – command:
  • Page Actions – action:

An example:

  1. Press F2 / ⌘ E to open Quick Commands.
  2. Type “bookmark:” followed by your search term.
  3. If the needed search result isn’t highlighted already, use up and down keyboard keys to select the bookmark you were looking for.
  4. Press Enter or click on the bookmark to open it.

It’s also possible to use shorter keywords like bkm: (bookmark), tb: (tab), cmd: (command) and other alternative search terms derived using regular expression.
