Escape for the literal character space " "

just for faster and more accurately search
apparently the character space " " is widely used for file/folder names,and the edit string uses space " " as the delimiter to separate the search keywords, but in this case you cannot input the character space " " literally.
maybe "/ " or "\ " or "\s" to escape the literal space " "?

[" "] can be redefined as [/ ] with the filter by the way.
Although [foo" "some" "thing] is not like ["foo some thing"] ,it will reduce a lot of unwanted results.
