How to Create a Searchable Word Document


One of the advantages of Word documents is that they are searchable, meaning once you create the document, it is automatically searchable. To perform a search on a Word document, only a small amount of extra work is required by the searcher.

  • Double-click the "Word" icon on your desktop or "Start" menu to open Word.

  • Click "File" and select "New."

  • Click "Blank Document" under "Available Templates."

  • Click "Create."

  • Type the desired text on the page. Press "Ctrl" and "S" to save the document after you finish typing the text.

  • Press the "Ctrl" and "F" keys to open the "Find" box.

  • Type the term or terms for which you want to search into the "Find" box and press "Enter." Word will highlight the term or terms that you searched.
