The Atlantic – Crazy: 90 Percent of People Don’t Know How to Use CTRL+F

This week, I talked with Dan Russell, a search anthropologist at Google, about the time he spends with random people studying how they search for stuff. One statistic blew my mind. 90 percent of people in their studies don’t know how to use CTRL/Command + F to find a word in a document or web page! I probably use that trick 20 times per day and yet the vast majority of people don’t use it at all.

via The Atlantic – Crazy: 90 Percent of People Don’t Know How to Use CTRL+F. It always astonishes how many people who use the computer every day for a large part of their daily lives know almost zero shortcuts.
