This search engine helps you find documents on this website. Here's how it works: you tell the search service what you're looking for by typing in keywords, phrases, or questions in the search box. The search service responds by giving you a list of all the Web pages in our index relating to those topics. The most relevant content will appear at the top of your results.
Our default search requires 'All words' that you type to be found on a page in order to be included in the results. Use the search box on this page for 'Any word' or 'Exact phrase' searches.
How To Use:
Here's an example:
More Basics - An Overview
What is a Word?
When searching, think of a word as a combination of letters and numbers. The search service needs to know how to separate words and numbers to find exactly what you want on this website. You can separate words using white space and tabs.
Example: A product item number such as 'CS-40XLC-S' is considered one word.
What is a Phrase?
You can link words and numbers together into phrases if you want specific words or numbers to appear together in your result pages. If you want to find an exact phrase, use "double quotation marks" around the phrase when you enter words in the search box. You may also select Match 'Exact phrase' as the type of search.
Example #1: To find lyrics by the King, type "you ain't nothing but a hound dog" in the search box. You can also create phrases using punctuation or special characters such as dashes, underscore lines, commas, slashes, or dots.
Example #2: Try searching for 1-800-999-9999 instead of 1 800 999 9999. The dashes link the numbers together as a phrase.
What is the Match Type?
You may select the type of search to perform with the keywords that you type. The three match types are 'All words' or 'Any word' or 'Exact phrase'.
Simple Tips for More Exact Searches
Searches are NOT case sensitive. Searching for "Fur" will match the lowercase "fur" and uppercase "FUR".
By default, all searches are accent insensitive as well. Accent sensitivity relates to Latin characters like õ.
Including or excluding words:
To make sure that a specific word is always included in your search topic, place the plus (+) symbol before the key word in the search box. To make sure that a specific word is always excluded from your search topic, place a minus (-) sign before the keyword in the search box.
Example: To find recipes for cookies with oatmeal but without raisins, try "recipe cookie +oatmeal -raisin".
Expand your search using wildcards (*):
By typing an * within a keyword, you can match up to four letters.
Example: Try wish* to find wish, wishes, or wishful.
