Search within page on this community

This post pertains to an earlier discussion about the difficulty of searching within individual pages on this community:

Today, I noticed the problem again and also happened upon a solution – at least on a Mac – not sure about other platforms.

On my Mac (Chrome or Safari), I found today that command-F took me to the search function for the entire community instead of the “search within page” function. Then, however, I noticed that I could access the search within page function by holding down the command key and hitting the F key twice in quick succession.

Please let me know if it works on PCs (control-F).

By the way, please be aware that there is a stand-alone app for the community:

Personally, however, I prefer an ordinary browser.

I just noticed that there are quite few keyboard shortcuts we can use, though the particular kind of trick to bypass the normal search that I described above is not listed.
