Q

How do I search for a word on a web-page? The article is long, and I want to see if it mentions my topic.

Answer

All web browsers have a Find function. Access the menu (usually found by clicking a button to the right of the address bar) , or you can use a keyboard shortcut.

Just press the Ctrl (control) button and the F button at the same time. (for Mac users, hit Command and F). Type your word or phrase into the search bar, and if it finds it more than once, use the arrow keys to quickly jump to each instance. The search bar is usually at the top right, or the bottom left.

Below is a link to some handy keyboard short-cuts for Windows and Mac.
