Find and Replace

Category : 5th Class

*     Find and Replace

 

When you create a document in Microsoft Word, you may decide to change a certain word or phrase that is repeated throughout the document. For example, in your Computer project on Email, you may have spelt E-mail in two different ways -  E - mail and e-mail. For the sake of consistency, you can change all the instances of the word to e- mail with the Find and Replace feature of Word. (See Figure 5.4.1)  

 

   

 

 

*  Steps:

  • Place your cursor at the beginning of your document.
  • Click on the Edit menu.
  • Click on the Find option. The Find and Replace window open.
  • Select the Replace tab.
  • Type the word or phrase that you want to find in the "Find what" box.
  • Type the word or phrase you want to replace it with in the "Replace with" box.
  • Select All, Up or Down in the Search drop-down menu to tell Word how much or which part of the document you want to cover with this search and replace.
  • Select Find Next or Replace if you want to manually replace each word or phrase.
  • Select Replace All if you want Word to automatically search for and replace each instance of the word or phrase without first checking with you.
