Microsoft Word Keyboard Shortcut for Find and Replace
I can't find an easy way to open the find and replace dialogue box in newer versions of Microsoft Word. There must be some way to access this by the ribbon or other menu in MS Word, but I can not seem to find it. What I have found, however, is an easy keyboard shortcut to find and replace text in a MS Word document. In the open file (.doc or .docx) just use the following shortcut keys and the find/replace window will appear:
CTRL + H
**Update: I found the point and click approach for bringing up the find and replace dialogue box! If you are on the home tab of newer MS Word versions, the button is located on the far right. There is a section for editing that includes a find, replace, and select menu.
