Yes it is easy to remember, that is unless, like me, you have defined ctrl+alt+y as a shortcut to an app, in which case it doesn't work.

Hello all

The shortcut key for next search result is ctrl+alt+y. Nice and easy.

Kind regards

Hi everyone

I used to use ctrl+f for find in Word.

Since I got the advice on search that circulated lately on the list I started using it as it was set out in the list. It works fantastically well.

I don’t think that hitting F6 several times is really the answer, rather use the escape and ctrl+pgdn, as described.

Thanks for all the input from all the listers.

Have a nice day

I can confirm this also. Windows 7 and office 2010

here are some tips to work with the find functionality of word 2010:

* hit ctrl + f to go to the search field
* enter the term you wish to search for, and hit enter
* use f6 (several times, maybe 3) to get back to the document, where the first result is focused
* to go to next / previous search result: hit f6, the focus will jump to the navigation toolbar, from there click previous / next search result
* again, use f6, several times, as needed, to get back to the document where the search result is focused

I don't know the shortcuts for previous / next search result, sorry!

hope that helps!

This has not been the case in the past and I don't think I'm doing
anything differently than I had been before. I have, regardless of
screen reader, had many instances where I didn't seem to get the
screen reader find with
INS+CTRL+F but generally would on a subsequent try. Not in this
INS+CTRL+case. I
smell a possible bug.

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's
