How to quickly find what you are looking for on any webpage. Plus how to find and replace that word (or words) on any word processing site (Google, Microsoft, etc).

 If you have ever searched up and down in a PDF, website, or even a Google Doc it can be overwhelming. Remember to try using ctrl f to find what you are looking for. 

A nice feature, especially if you are writing a paper is the option to find and replace.

In the example below I show how I pasted 25 fantasy baseball team names from ChatGPT in a Google Doc and it provided me with ** at the beginning of the name and the end **. 

If you want to remove them

  • use ctrl f
  • click on the three dots
you will then see the image you see below
  • type in what you would like to find and then what you would like to replace it with
    • in my example I typed in ** and left the replace with empty. I then chose to replace all and they were gone!
Embedded below is a 1 minute YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
