Ctrl + F does not search in Google Sheets
When I try to use Ctrl + F to find a word or letter in a column on Google Sheets it does not search through the Sheet. Instead it will look at the webpage elements such as File, Edit, etc.
Try F3 (Find Next) instead.
From the image you can see that there are two different "Fall" words. One is on the outer webpage and the other is on the actual Google Sheets. Ctrl + F or F3, which do the same thing, are not detecting the "Fall" in the Google Sheets.
Oh! Thank you. I didn't realize that there were two places to insert what I was looking for.
