Within my SharePoint Online site, I see how cool it is to search for document with operators, such as...

Red NOT White

It will pull up my assets that have Red, but leave out any that also include white. Sweet!

But on the Site Content page, when I search for a document library or list, and want to filter out documents in the same fashion...

Library-A NOT XYZ

...Nothing shows up for results even though I do have a document library called "Library-A". Is there any way to enable search operators on the site content page?


I am afraid this is currently not supported. If you try to search, you will find that the search on the site content page is all list/library, and the item/file cannot be searched.

And I think the search on the site content page is not as smart as on the document search page.
