Hi,
The alpha_bar plugin was designed to do this, but changed into something else along the way. If you install it, I think it's still in the download area, it should allow you to search by either "start of string" or "containing" options. It passes in 'query%' to the search routines, and it's been running on IdentityDots.com for a few years now.

If it's pre 2.1.2 , you'll have to edit the headers, to include the Links init(/path/to/admin) string.

If it's not in the download area, I'll repackage it for the Ultranerds download area when I release the MyFavLinks and SearchLogger updated plugins.
