Internet Explorer 7 Misc

Find Text in the Current Page

SUMMARY: Search for desired text in the current webpage. Also perform case-sensitive and whole word only searches.

When viewing search engine query results, you might come across a webpage that, at first glance, does not seem to contain your desired search term.

If you're unable to find desired text in a particular webpage, Internet Explorer 7 has a "Find" dialog box you can open to search for text. To open it, either:

A. Click on the Search Options button - it is the pull-down next to the magnifying glass located to the right of the search box. Choose "Find on this Page".

Clicking the Search Options button to find text in the current webpage

B. Select "Edit" - "Find on this Page". (no menu bar in Internet Explorer 7?)

C. Press Ctrl-F.

Internet Explorer 7's Find dialog box

Type in the text you want to find and click "Next", or press Enter, to find the text in the page.

* Clicking "Previous" cycles through previous matching text.

* Click "Match case" for case-sensitive searches.

* Click "Match whole word only" for whole-word searches, so searching for Read will not find Reader.
