Special searches

Special searches use opt-in Search Providers that Quick Search ignores unless you explicitly use them. Special searches differ from regular searches in the following ways:

  • You can only execute a special search using its search token.
  • You cannot combine a special search with any other Search Provider.
  • You cannot toggle a special Search Provider on and off in the Filters pane. However, you can disable Special Searches from the Quick Search Preferences.

To perform a special search, prefix your search query with the provider’s search token.

Quick search has the following special Search Providers:
