Learn how to search for a word on a webpage in Internet Explorer.

Need to find a word quickly on a page using Internet Explorer? Simply press the "Ctrl" and "F" keys simultaneously to open the "Find" toolbar (or dialog in older Internet Explorer versions), and then type in your word; the word you're looking for will be highlighted if it appears on the website; you can also use the "Previous" and "Next" buttons to cycle through the results.
