How do I find text on a web page in IE for windows 7?

Asked by HungryGuy (15992points) June 26th, 2010

I just noticed something. Internet Exploder for Win 7 doesn’t have a menu bar with File, Edit, Tools, Help, etc. Without Help, I can’t even tell you what version of IE this is—sorry. Anyway, on XP, I would click on Edit, then Find in the drop down menu. This functionality doesn’t seem to even exist on IE for Win 7. Is there a 3rd party utility (like the Google toolbar) to find text on a web page?

Have you tried CTRL+F as a hotkey combination?

HungryGuy's avatar

Nope. I haven’t tried that. Should I?

I do believe you should! It’s the default “Find” hotkey for almost any application. Same for an Apple computer, instead of CTRL however, you press the “Command” (Apple key) instead. Give that a shot, and let me know if that works for you.

Yup! That works! I didn’t know that… Thanks :-)

BTW, I found the answer on another Q&A site…

On the far right, click on Tools, then click on Toolbars. It gives you a list of all available toolbars. Click on whatever ones you want. The traditional Edit, File, etc. is the Menu Bar. For some mysterious reason, the default is that it’s turned off.

It’s easy. Go to www.getfirefox.com. Click Download, then click Run when the window pops up.

What about Chrome?

Chrome’s fine too.
