How to Search for a Word on a Web Page in Mac Chrome

The Google Chrome browser comes with a bunch of tools that provide users with an incredible browsing experience, that includes a feature that enables you to search for a word on a web page.

But that leaves you asking, how to search for a word on a web page in Mac Chrome?

Hi, I’m Andreas. Much like any software developer, designer, and writer, I use the search feature on Google Chrome to find specific words or phrases on a web page. The tool saves me some time and ultimately, it makes my work much easier. 

In this article, I’ll show you a quick guide on how to search for a word or phrase on a web page in Chrome on Mac.

How to Launch the “Find” Tool on Chrome Mac

There are two ways to use the “find” tool in Google Chrome.

Method 1: Access It via Chrome Settings

Step 1: Launch the Google Chrome browser on your Mac.

Step 2: Go to the three vertical dots on the top-right side, and click on “Find.” A search bar will appear where you can write a word or phrase for the tool to find for you.

It’s that easy. But there’s a quicker way to do it.

Method 2: Use a Keyboard Shortcut

In the previous method, you will also notice the shortcut is written next to where it says “Find.”

Yes, the keyboard shortcut is Command + F. This is the second method to launch the tool. 

As you can see, both are very easy to find and use. Now all that’s left is to use it according to your needs.

How to Use the “Find” Tool on Chrome Mac

When you use the tool, notice the two arrows – one pointing up and the other pointing down. You can use the arrows to scroll up or down through the web page where the searched word or phrase appears. 

Sometimes, you might not get more than one “find” result, especially if searching for longer phrases. But if you’re searching for a particular word, there’s a chance the web page might display more than one result. You can then use the up and down arrows to scroll through all searches.

Every time you search for a word or phrase, the tool will highlight it in yellow or bright orange. That lets you know exactly where the word or phrase is located on the page.

These are all handy mechanics that bring up the quality of life of the Google Chrome browser. It makes for a better browsing experience and an easier way to find what you’re looking for.


That concludes my short guide on how to search for a word or phrase on Google Chrome Mac. As you can see, it takes one keyboard shortcut to open the “Find” tool on your Mac.
