A Trick to Find Anyone in your EventPosted on: June 20, 2017
Do you know the trick to finding virtually any word on a page? Like a walker name in your column browser, or a particular guest’s name in your all members list?
So what is this magical trick for finding anyone or anything?
Ctrl+F. Yes, that’s it: Ctrl+F. Simple, right?
Control-F (or Command-F) gives you the ability to look for–or find–a word somewhere on a page, any page!
When you click Ctrl+F, a small “find” box will pop up somewhere in your browser where you can type in the exact word or phrase you are looking for. Click “enter” and your word or phrase will be highlighted on the page and—if it’s outside the current screen—the page will jump to where the word is located.
If the name or phrase exists more than once on the page as in the above sample, you can then either click the down arrow in the find box, click “enter” or click Ctrl+G to move on to the “next” match.
This keyboard shortcut works in all web browsers and for other documents too! (Think PDF, Excel or Word for example.)
So, next time you’re searching for a specific name within your event, remember Ctrl+F and save yourself a lot of time.
And for us Mac users, Cmd+F works exactly the same way 😉
P.S. Keyboard shortcuts save a TON of time as it eliminates the use of a mouse. From copying & pasting, to finding items on a page, to quitting programs, you’ll be amazed as to how much faster you can work. For a list of Windows Shortcuts, click here. Mac users, here’s your list.
