    finding a word on a webpage

    I frequently used this before but how in the world do you do it using vista?
    On xp it was click on edit I think and you used a find feature.

    I personally hold down control and press ''f'' (no quotations) to bring this
    option up.

    You search the web page in your web browser, using its Search/Find feature.

    In Firefox, for example, it's Edit > Find on this Page. Isn't that the
    sort of thing you're after?

    It's not really a Vista issue - and most if not all browsers would have a
    "Find" feature of some sort.

    Ctrl+F will open a find function in the following browsers:
    IE7
    Firefox 2
    Netscape 9
    Opera 9.27
    Avant 11.6
    Flock 1.1
    Safari 3.1

    And probably all of the other upteen browsers that exist. I only use the
    ones listed.

    If you press, then let go of the 'alt' key, the menu will show up, using
    IE7.
