Chapter 2. Performing the Treo Essentials > Search Your Treo for Text

Search Your Treo for Text

As you continue to use your Treo for a while and amass a fair amount of data, you'll undoubtedly run into a situation where you need to search your device for information. Fortunately, the Treo includes a built-in text search feature called Find used to search the entire device for a string of text. Follow these steps to use the Find feature to find text on your device:

1.
Press the Option key followed by the Shift/Find key to open the Find screen (see Figure 2.26).

Figure 2.26. In the Find screen, you can enter a string of text to search for on your device.


2.
Enter the exact text for which you'd like to search, and tap the OK button to carry out the search. The search results appear in a larger Find screen (see Figure 2.27). In this example, the memo named “2x4's” is a match because it contains the search term “nails.”

Figure 2.27. The Find screen expands to show the search results, which you can interact with by tapping a specific result.


3.
If you don't see an interesting match, tap the Find More button to continue searching your device. When you see an interesting match in the Find screen, tap it in the list to open it.
