Whether you call them "Favorites" in IE / Edge or "Bookmarks" in Chrome, is there any way to run a search on them for a desired character string?

 

BTW, I'm still using IE instead of Edge, even though I've upgraded to Win10 (Pro).

 Have you tried searching with Cortana?


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

For Chrome press Ctrl + Shift + O and type your search string in the Search Bookmarks box.

I just tried it for the first time, and it seems pointless to me, since it behaves exactly as if you typed into the search field on the task bar without invoking Cortana. And what that behavior is like is exactly the problem - I can find a file whose filename includes the desired string, but I can't search file content.
