Search with Ctrl+F

Here's the scenario. You're on a Web site looking for a particular word or phrase and you can't, for the life of you, find it. Well, a quick keyboard shortcut can save you from all of that searching.

Just hold down Ctrl+F at the same time. Ctrl+F will bring up a Find box on your screen. You can just type in any word or phrase in the search box and hit Enter. It will then proceed to highlight the word (or words) that you are looking for. Once you find the first one, it might appear again, so just click, or tab to the "Find Next" button and it will find the same thing again. It will do that until the whole Web page or document is scanned.

You can search in either a Up or Down direction and you can even choose the way your matches are found. You can select "Match whole word only" or "Match case." It's all up to you! It's just a fast and easy way to scan through a page and find exactly what you're looking for! The same command also works in MS-Word and most other editors.
