Find Command on an iPad

On a computer, Command F (for Find) takes you to the word or phrase that you type. Great time-saver!

How do you do Find on an iPad since there is no Tab key? Here’s a tip I learned from a student.

  1. Type the word you want to find in the address bar.
  2. Tap the keyboard icon in the lower right-hand corner to hide it. (Do no tap Go! It will take you to another website.)
  3. The last item on the drop down list is “On This Page.” Tap it.
  4. That word will now be highlighted on the page! There is also a search box at the bottom of the page, so you can continue searching for other words.
