Find Text in Microsoft Edge: Overview

            To find text in Microsoft Edge that is shown within a web page, click the “More actions” button in the command bar at the top of the window. This is the button that look like an ellipsis mark (…) in the upper-right corner of the window. Then select the “Find on page” command in the drop-down menu that appears.

            A “Find on page” bar will then appear at the top of the window, below the “Address Bar.” Enter the text you want to find on the page into the “Find on page” text box. Microsoft Edge will automatically highlight all matching text within the web page and display the total number of results to the right of the text box.

            You can then click the “Previous” and “Next” arrow buttons that appear to the right of the search results to jump to the different occurrences of the text within the page. To enable or disable additional searching options, click the “Options” drop-down button and then click the search setting you want to enable or disable. If the setting appears with a checkmark next to its name in the drop-down menu, the setting is currently enabled. If unchecked, it is currently disabled. The settings are “Match whole word” and “Match case.” When you are finished finding text in the web page, click the “X” button at the right end of the “Find on page” bar to close it.
