Tip: Using the Find Feature

When you are browsing any page in any browser (as far as I know–I’ve tried
in IE and Firefox) and you’re looking for a particular word or phrase, you do
not have to use the Edit pull-down menu at the top of the screen. Instead,
follow this short-cut:

  1. Hit Control and F at the same time. A little toolbar will pop up at the bottom of your screen with a box for you type in your search term.
  2. Type your search term. The associated word will be highlighted on the screen and you’ll find what you’re looking for much faster. If what you’re looking for is not on that page you’ll get a little *splat* noise.

Try it and see what happens. You’ll get the drift soon enough, and then
you’ll be hooked. No more going to the Edit pull-down menu like a sucker for
you! You’re all about the short-cuts! You techno-guru! Yeah!
