As new government guidance is announced and changes are made to the FHT statement on coronavirus (COVID-19), we realise our members are spending a lot more time reading information online. We understand that there can be a lot to look through, so wanted to share one handy tip to easily find a word or phrase on a webpage that relates to your query.

Using a laptop

If you press CTRL+F on your keyboard, a search bar will appear on your browser. Simply type in a key word that relates to your query, hit enter, and your browser will automatically highlight that word within a body of text.

Using a touch screen device

When using a device such as an iPad or mobile, go to safari and enter the URL of the webpage you are looking to visit. Once you are on the page you need, click back on the search bar and type in a key word that relates to your query. At this point you don’t need to hit enter, information will automatically come up below with more detail about your word, popular Google searches relating to your word and words ‘on this webpage’. Click on the final section and your browser will automatically highlight that word for you on the webpage. Please see an example screenshot below.
