Windows 7: Search Chrome shortened names

Search Chrome shortened names

I used to have it set up on Chrome prior to reinstalling Windows so that it would search whatever site I wanted by typing a shortened version of the url.

ie. instead of typing www.Wikipedia.com WWII in the address bar, I could just type wiki WWII and it would do the same, only expediting my search, and making my life a little bit easier.

I couldn't remember what this feature was called and I wasn't sure what to search to figure out how to set it up again. I'm just hoping someone else knows what I am talking about so that they can save me some time.

Thanks.

Thank you, the layout of the menus within Chrome have changed a couple of times since what version I had. I knew it was something simple.

*bookmarked* just in case

Search file names only
In Vista and Win7 beta, under folder options | Search | what to search, there was an option called "search file names only". It's not there in the final Win7. Is there a global or per-drive option to only index file names, not contents? The reason is obvious: it would be a lot faster. For...
