Searching with the Navigation Pane
New to Word 2010, the Navigation pane helps you find the word or phrase you’re
looking for faster and more efficiently, by showing you all instances of the term in
context. Here’s how to use it:
1. Inthedocumentyou’researching,clickHome Find(Alt,H,FD,F).
The Navigation pane opens on the left side of the screen, as shown in Figure 2-5.
2. IntheNavigationpane’sSearchbox,typethewordorphraseyouwanttofind.
Even as you type, Word searches for matching text. It displays matches (in
context, wherever they occur) in the main part of the Navigation pane and
highlights them in the text. If you continue to type, Word refines its results when
you pause again.
3. Scroll through theNavigation pane’s results to find the particular instance
you’relookingfor.Clicktheresultyouwant.
Word jumps to that phrase, highlighting it, in the document.
Figure 2-5:

document.
Tip: One of the great benefits of the Navigation pane is that you can use it to search for more than just
text. In Word 2010, you can search for graphics, tables, and equations, too. Chapter 3 tells you more about
hunting down these items.
