Find it Quickly!

Have you ever looked at a lengthy web page or Word document that you're sure must contain a piece of information that's relevant to you, but you don't know how to find it quickly? Here's a very simple tip to hone in on the sections that interest you.

Just hold down the 'Ctrl' key and then tap the 'F' button, and a pop-up box will appear where you can type the word or phrase that you are looking for. Then press return and the computer will highlight this information for you; if the word or phrase appears more than once then just 'click next' and it will highlight where it occurs again. This is a very effective trick which can save you a lot of time when you're reading for an assignment.
