    Hi I'm new here and I'm happy to be the proud owner of my first MAC computer. Loving it so far but I need to get used to some functions available to a normal PC.

    Can anyone telll me if it's possible to search for spefic words within a document or website. E.g. when I search for specific items in a search engine and the websites come up, I want to be able to search for the words when I click on the search engine results. Previously for windows PC I will press the "Control-F" function and they will search and highlight the words that come up.

    Can anynoe let me know if MAC provides this function as well?

    Cheers

    Oh yes. The command you'll find usedul is command-F.
    (Command may also show the "apple" key on your keyboard, so the one next to spacebar).

    You may also find this document useful - it has all Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts in it.

    You will need to provide just a little more info...

    When you resurrect a 6-year-old thread - it can help if you ask a question or two :D
