Try in SearchBox:
wholeword:test
or
ww:test

If you use Filters, it will be added to the SearchBox at background but you won't see it written in SearchBox.

Normally filters will be ANDed with your search.

If you would like your filters to apply wholewords to your current search, you will need to set a special filter search and macro:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Organize Filters...
  • Select your Whole Words filter.
  • Click Edit....
  • Change the Search to: ww:<search:>
  • Change the Macro: wwfilter<search>
  • Click OK.
  • Click OK.
Now when you set the active filter to your Whole Words filter and search for ABC 123, your search will be replaced with
ww:<ABC 123>

which is the same as
ww:ABC ww:123
