Yes, please try the #replace-terms: preprocessor command with your Filename or Tag filter:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters....
  • Set the Name to:
    Filename or Tag
  • Change the Search to:
    #replaceterms:#(:search:#):,#(:"<#term:|tag:#term:>"#):
  • Change the Macro to:
    filenameortag<search>
  • Click OK.
Filters can be activated from the Search menu, Filter bar (View -> Filters), right clicking the status bar, filter macro or filter keyboard shortcut.

There's currently a bug with Everything not parsing the entire new term.
This will be fixed in the next update.

Please use double quotes to parse the entire new term:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters....
  • Set the Name to:
    Filename or Tag
  • Change the Search to:
    #replaceterms:#(:search:#):,#(:"<#term:|tag:#term:>"#):
    Note: the addition of double quotes (")
  • Change the Macro to:
    filenameortag<search>
  • Click OK.
