  Finding in the browser's search box

Finding something specific on a long or complex web page can be frustrating, like finding a needle in a haystack. Fortunately, there is an easy way to perform a search on the page with an almost universal shortcut. How to use.

To quickly search a web page ("Find the 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 a Mac) on the keyboard. "F" stands for "Find" and it works in all browsers.
