Find Specific Words on a Webpage in Google Chrome on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Ash0hley, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to find specific words in a webpage in Google Chrome while using an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button, located on top of the phone. Once the phone has been activated, we'll see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and swipe up. Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the home screen. At the bottom, there will be icons.
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.
Now, we need this icon, in the top right-hand corner of the screen. It looks like three small white dots in a vertical line. Press down on this icon, and it will open up a menu.
We want the option called, "Find in page." Press down on this option.
We will see that a bar has appeared, and we need to type our word in this bar. Tap on the bar and enter our 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. One is pointing up, and one is pointing down.
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.
If we want to exit this function, just press the "X" in the top right-hand corner. It will exit the mode, and take us back to the article.
This then, concludes our tutorial on how to find specific words within a webpage on Google Chrome while using the HTC One M8.
