    Search this forum

    For some reason the 'Search this Forum' box doesn't appear on any of the threads that I access, making it difficult for me to narrow my searches to specifics within threads. Any reason why I don't get this box on my screen?

    Thanks

    I don't know what you mean by the "Search this Forum" box. There is (or ought to be) a Search item in the Lounge menu near the top - see screenshot. This takes you to the Search page, where you can specify several search options, among which the search scope - a single forum, a group of forums (such as Office or Windows), or the entire Lounge.

    Re: Search this forum

    I was looking in the HELP section for some means of searching threads for specific topics within the thread. I went to the HELP screen and found this in Section 6. Boards - an Overview. The highlighted section near the bottom of the screen print mentions a 'Search this forum' box, which I assumed meant you could do what I described above.

    Ah, that must be an oversight, I'll report it. The box is actually labeled "Forum or Category to search". Another useful box is "Search options" - it lets you specify whether you want to search for a combination of words, an exact phrase, etc.

    Claude has now removed the incorrect sentence about the "Search this forum" box from the Help. Thanks for pointing out the inconsistency.
