Searching Help

Use the search feature to find specific words or phrases in the Help.

  • To search on a phrase, include quotation marks around the phrase: for example, type short circuit in the Search box to find everywhere that the specific phrase short circuit is used in Help. The phrase is highlighted within each topic.
  • To search on words, do not include quotation marks around them: for example, type short circuit in the Search box to find everywhere that the words short or circuit are used in Help. The words are highlighted within each topic.

Advanced Search

You can use additional search terms to achieve better search results, as described below.

  • AND: Use AND between two or more search words to display topics that contain all of the words you've specified. The word AND does not have to be capitalized. For example, if you search fish AND ride AND bicycle, the search results display topics that include all three words fish, ride, and bicycle.
  • Tip: You can use the plus symbol + or ampersand symbol & in place of the word AND.

  • OR: Use OR between two or more search words to display topics that contain any of the words you've specified. The word OR does not have to be capitalized. For example, if you search fish OR ride OR bicycle, the search results display topics that include any of the words fish, ride, or bicycle.
  • Tip: You can use the pipe symbol | in place of the word OR.

  • NOT: Use NOT before a search word to display only topics that do not contain the word you've specified. The word NOT does not have to be capitalized. For example, if you search NOT bicycle, the search results do not display any topics where the word bicycle is included.
  • You can also use NOT to find topics that contain one search word but not another. For example, if you search fish NOT bicycle, the search results display all topics that contain the word fish that do not also contain the word bicycle.

    Tip: You can use the carat symbol ^ in place of the word NOT.

Combining Search Operators

Use parentheses to combine different search operators. For example, to search for topics that contain the word fish and either of the words ride or bicycle, type fish and (ride or bicycle) in the Search box. The search displays the topics that contain the words fish and ride or that contain the words fish and bicycle.

Searching Within a Topic

To search for words within a topic, press CTRL+F to open a Find window.
