How to Search for a Word in Microsoft Edge

Let’s see how to search for the word or phrase on a web page in Microsoft Edge.

Here, I’m using Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), iPhone (iOS 15.2), and Windows 11 PC. Let’s begin.

How to Search in Microsoft Edge (PC)

Open Edge browser.

Press Ctrl + F (or click on the three horizontal dots at the top right > Find on page) on the web page.

Enter the word or phrase you want to search for in the “Find” bar at the top.

When you enter a word or phrase, the Edge browser highlights all instances of it on the page.

You can see the current instance number and the total number of appearances beside your search term.

You can also see the up and down arrows on the Find bar.

By clicking the up arrow, you’ll go to the previous instance of the word or phrase you typed, and by clicking the down arrow, you’ll go to the next instance.

Hit X to close the Find bar.

How to Search in Microsoft Edge (Android or iPhone)

Go to the desired web page in the Edge app.

Tap the button with the three horizontal dots below.

Click on the “Find on page” option.

Enter the search term into the Find bar at the top.

When you type, the app highlights all instances of the search term. You can see the current instance number and the number of instances next to the search term.

If you wish, you can press:

  • The Up arrow – Takes you to the previous instances.
  • The Down arrow – Takes you to the following instances.
  • X – Close the Find bar. If you’re on an iPhone, tap Done to close the Find bar.

That’s all.

Thanks for reading.
