Search bar ?

Hi,

I am not sure what it is called but there is a bar at the bottom of the screen, in Windows 7, and if you are looking for a word or phrase on a webpage it highlights those items. I don't seem to have it on my laptop, how do I get it to display and work ?

Thanks, Mickmac

Hi RYO,

I checked my Windows Search and it it turned on. What I was referring to is a narrow bar which runs across the very bottom of the page, right above the Task Bar. In this bar you enter a word or phrase and if it is on the page it will be highlighted, in yellow I think. I thought I had it on my laptop when I first bought it about 6 months ago, but it is not there now. I don't know the name of this feature so I cannot do Google search for it.

Thanks, Mickmac

I think you are talking about browser's search bar, for instance in Firefox it is located at the bottom. When you type a search criteria, all matches are highlighted on current page.

This is a feature in your browser, not in Windows 7.

An example of Firefox search. Choosing Find in Edit menu opens the bar:

I'm guessing he can't post a screenshot as the thing he's asking about is missing!
There's nothing to show.

Start Search broken, doesn't return search.
I'm not really sure how to explain this and this is my first post so I think I will just show you, yeah, that's probably the best way. The best way I see to explain it is instead of a list of the files and programs found in the start search showing up it just shows a few files like Documents.file,...
