If you are like me, and live in Google Chrome, you probably use other Google Services. I use Google Drive and Gmail extensively. I would love it if when I searched in the Google Chrome
Address Bar Omnibox, that it could search other places.
Well, you kind of can. On the Omnibox..
Right click, Edit search engines..
The under “Other Search Engines”: add two entries..
Google Drive | drive.google.com | http://drive.google.com/?hl=en&tab=bo#search/%s
Gmail | gmail.com | https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#apps/%s
then if you type drive.google.com and hit “tab” instead of enter, you can type in your search term, same with the gmail.com shortcut.
If you do all that, then you should be able to search Google Drive and Gmail straight from the Chrome Omnibox.

You can also do this with Google Play Music
Play Music | music | https://play.google.com/music/listen#/sr/%s
Here’s one that is overlooked…
how about to search only for folders…
