How to use implemented find bar in almost all Internet browsers

When you enter an Internet website you are sometimes searching for a phrase or term, often in a vast amount of text. Sometimes, you search for research, and for these situations there is a helpful function called the find bar. Programmers have implemented the find bar feature into almost all Internet browsers with the goal of providing quick and easy results. Below, you can have a look at how it works.


  1. Open your Internet browser to a page where you want to search.
  2. When the page is loaded, press “CTRL + F” on your keyboard.
  3. In your browser a search tool will open.
    For example, Internet Explorer® docks a new bar at the top of the window.
    Mozilla Firefox® docks a new bar at the bottom of the window.
  4. Type the desired word or phrase into the “Find” box. The first find is highlighted. You can move to the next by hitting the “Enter” key on your keyboard or the “Next” button on the find bar. To locate the previous find, click on the “Previous” button on the find bar.
  5. If your search doesn't find any result, an informational message is displayed in the find bar.

Tips and tricks:

  • If you want to see all the results on the website at once, the find bar has a function that enables highlighting all the results. In Internet Explorer® it is “Highlight all matches” and in Mozilla Firefox® it is “Highlight all.”
