Obtaining better search results

Expression Studio 2.0

If you are having difficulty finding a topic, you may need to refine your search techniques. The following tips can help you get better search results:

  • Use descriptive, specific words.

  • Try different words that have a similar meaning. Choose words that are most likely to appear in the content. The more specific these words are, the more specific your results are. Focus on terms that describe the task you want to perform.

  • Add more words. Searches using two or more words may return the most accurate results.

  • Spell your search words correctly.

  • Try a different phrase. For example, suppose that you want to find a Help topic on how to insert a manual page break in a Word document. Instead of typing "break" in the Search box, type specific words, such as "Insert page break."
