Find It Fast on Mobile

I’ve written before about by the nature of Extension and Research Extension’s work, that our content can be quite long on web pages. It helps to break up the content on a web page by using headings.

When you want to find a term or phrase on a web page quickly without having to scroll, you can use Ctrl + F on your keyboard.

Find in a page on mobile
Kebab menu and Find in Page

To do a word or phrase search on mobile Chrome or Firefox, go the web page you want to search. In the upper right on the “kebab” menu (three vertical dots), click on it to expand to go to “Find in Page”. Type in the word or phrase you want to find, and the browser will highlight it for you.

It works a little differently on the Safari browser for Apple devices. Go to the page you want to find a word/phrase on and then “X” to clear the text. Type in the word/phrase. Google search result will probably display first, but just scroll down to where you see “Find phrase”. Choose that option and it will “jump” to the results. See detailed instructions and screenshots in item #2 here.

If you need help finding something quickly on a webpage or mobile site using these instructions, please contact me for assistance.
