Is there any way to search in your Google Chrome history for a pdf file? I know you can accomplish this in the regular Google search box with filetype:pdf. But this does not work in the history search box.

This is the search box I am talking about:

In case it matters, I am using Google Chrome 24.


No it is not possible to search Chrome History by file type, but it might be possible to search by file type in Google Web History with filetype:pdf .When i try it out in my Google Web History i get just pdf files.
