No, not possible (but I'm only 90% sure)

That's quite a few filters, btw!

It is difficult to do with the stock menus that Everything uses, I would have to implement my own custom menus, which is on my TODO list.

I've added to my TODO list: add a Filter Browser.
This will show all your filters in a list and allow you to search the list for a filter by name.

For now, please consider menu folders.

Bookmarks, a very good idea anyway, great. And the TODO list.Thank you.

By the way, while the option which shows words being entered one time already - do not know the name - auto suggestion option or such is active / shown the shortcuts to set (own) search filters do not work. Is there a way to change that?

Another suggestion to make your filters scrollable: show the Filters on the search bar (Menu:View > Filters). That one has a scrollbar.

You could use the menu folders for your filters too. That way you would have Filter submenu's.

Sorry again, what is that? And where is it?

Sorry again again. I meant, that option shall be kept activated but without causing the shortcuts not to be working (when the search suggestions are shown) .

To show the Filter bar:
  • From the View menu, click Filters.
To change the left/right alignment of the filter bar:
  • drag the divider between the filter bar and the search box all the way to the left.
You could use the menu folders for your filters too. That way you would have Filter submenu's.
Sorry again, what is that? And where is it?
To enable menu folders:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /menu_folders=1
Use a \ in your filter's name to create submenus.
For example, if you have the following filter name:
Drives\C:
This filter will appear in a submenu called Drives and be listed as C:
MEnu:Tools > Options > History > Disable Always show search suggestions
Sorry again again. I meant, that option shall be kept activated but without causing the shortcuts not to be working (when the search suggestions are shown) .
Not quite sure what you want.
All the search history options can be found here:
/support/everything/ini/#search_history_always_suggest_extend_toolbar
/support/everything/options/#history

Ah, sorry, of course, another view for the filters. Now I see, sorry for my bad understanding. Yes, that was set like that already:

Could one extend that filters window / panel (drag the edge at the bottom down) at its end so scrolling might not be nessecary?
To enable menu folders:

In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
/menu_folders=1
Have it working, thank you.

Sorry, I type in a letter or more, a suggestion is shown, I press a shortcut to set a filter, but the filter is not applied, obviously during the suggestion is shown. I have to click the suggestion or press ENTER (without the suggestion being entered in the search field) to make the suggestion disappear and then press the shortcut to apply the filter to get it set. So how could one set a filter with a shortcut during a suggestion is shown?

Currently the filter drop down list is limited to 30 visible items.
I have added the ini option filter_visible_count_max to customize the maximum number of drop down list items for the next major version of Everything.

Keyboard shortcuts are unavailable when the suggestion list is shown.
The suggestion list is a modal dialog, I'll consider making this modeless so keyboard shortcuts will work.
I also have on my TODO list an option to show a filter window (that is list of all your filters) that will be pin-able to your search window.
