Searching for exact match in tag or description

Is there a way to do a search using exact string match? Currently, if I add a tag called “pinned” to an observation and then filter for tag “pinned” I also get all entries for Pinus. Not the same. I figure it must be selecting that because it’s a soundex match or something. I decided to try “mounted” instead of “pinned” and this time I got all entires mentioning “Mount Bonnell”. Same sort of thing. Those don’t match the string I was searching on. But maybe that’s just because it’s doing an approximate match of some sort. So is there a way to do an exact match? I tried using quotation marks, but that made no difference.

I see there is a way to limit the search to tags, for example, by modifying the URL as described here. https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-to-use-inaturalists-search-urls-wiki/63
