    It is one of these icons that we now need, to open up the applications folder.
    To do that, we need this icon at the bottom of the home screen, in the middle. It looks like a grid, made up of white dots. Press down on this icon to open up our applications folder.

    In this folder, we need to find the Google Chrome application.
    Mine is located here. We can see the Google Chrome icon, which is a circle made up of different colors. Underneath, it says the word "Chrome". Our Google Chrome application may be in different positions in this folder. Therefore, we will need to find it. Once we've done that, press down on it, to enter the application. In this video tutorial, we are going to learn how to find specific words within a webpage. This is a very useful function because it can be very difficult to read long articles on a phone. Anything with a lot of text can be quite difficult to read, as the screen is very small. Therefore, we can search for specific words. If we are looking for certain meanings or examples, it can save a lot of time.

    To do that, we first need a webpage.
    We have one here. Let's press down on it. If we didn't have one here, we could just search for one in the address bar. Find any webpage we want. Let's use an article with a lot of text.

    We are going to type in "Greece" since this is an article about Greece.
    Next to the word Greece there is a number. It says "4/31" This means that there are 31 examples of this word, and the fourth is currently selected. This is very useful because instead of having to read the entire article and look for this word, we can just type in the word, "Greece", and see every time it is used.

    If we wanted to cycle through these, we could use the small arrows.

    Press the Down arrow, and it will say "5/31", and the page will move.
    We know which one is selected, by the orange highlighted color around it. The other examples are yellow. Every time we press the up or down arrow, the orange box will move around another word.

    We can also see a bar along the right side of the screen that indicates where all of the different locations of "Greece" are in the article.
    For this specific one, there are more at the top of the article, and less at the bottom.
