Sort filename search matches to top without requiring operator

Use case or problem

My notes are mostly academic and my notes on sources use citekeys as filenames. 90% of the time I am searching for citekeys in at attempt to find and open the main source file, but 90% of the search matches are in blocks that refer to those files. This makes it very hard to quickly find and open the file I want.

I know that I can search in filenames using the file: operator, but it is a real pain to type that for nearly every search.

Proposed solution

I would like an option in settings to automatically sort filename matches to the top of the search results, followed by block matches.

Have you tried Control-o?
