Finding something specific within a long or complex web page can be frustrating, such as finding a needle in a haystack. Fortunately, there is an easy way to search in-page with an almost universal keyboard shortcut. Here's how.
To quickly search within a web page ("Search in page"), first open the page you want to search in your favorite web browser.
Press Ctrl + F (on Windows PC, Chromebook, or Linux system) or Command + F (on Mac) on the keyboard. The & # 39; F & # 39; stands for & # 39; Find & # 39; and it works in any browser.
If you use Google Chrome, a search bubble will appear in the top right corner of the window.
If you are using Microsoft Edge, a search bar will appear in the top left corner of the window.
 If you are using Mozilla Firefox, a search bar will appear in the bottom left corner of the window.
If you are using Apple Safari on Mac, a search bar will appear in the top right corner of the window.
And yes, even in Apple Safari on iPad, a search bar appears at the bottom of the screen when you press Command + F on a linked keyboard .
When you see the search bar, click in the text input field and type a word or phrase. The browser highlights all instances of your search on the page and you can scroll through them, up and down the page, with the arrows next to the search bar. Very handy!
This shortcut also works in other apps
Once you know the Search shortcut, you can apply it to many other programs and operating systems, not just web browsers.
For example, in Windows, Ctrl + F opens a search window on Notepad and brings the focus to the search bar in Explorer. It also works in Office. On a Mac, you can use Command + F to search in Finder or apps like Apple Music or Photos.
Try it on almost any app you use, and chances are it supports it. It's yet another handy tip to keep in your bag for all computer tools.
