Short answer: No.

What are you trying to do?

Everything searches file names.

You can add searches to your Everything Bookmarks from the Bookmark menu.

If you really wanted to, you can create a file list with urls and they will show up in Everything searches.
For example:, create the following Sites.efu file:

Code: Select all

Filename
https://www.google.com
Add this Sites.efu to your Everything Index under Tools -> Options -> File lists.
You can now search for google.com in Everything and this link will show up..



Did you want to search your Chrome bookmarks file for content?
Chrome's bookmarks are stored in the following file:
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks

This is a json file, you can search the contents of the json file in Everything with the utf8content: search function.

For example:
\google Bookmarks utf8content:"voidtools.com"
