    In Windows you would do a function and f to do a search. What is the command with mac? Also, I believe I had seen a thread that listed all the commands but i can not locate it again, any ideas?

    Cmd+spacebar if you're talking about searching your mac, cmd+f if you're talking about searching a webpage for certain words.

    cmd+spacebar will start a spotlight search.

    You can also use cmd+f when you are in Finder.

    Here is a list of shortcuts (although it is not exhaustive and doesn't include 3 party applications).

    In a Finder window, you will find a search box in the upper right hand corner. Also, if you press Command-F, a more robust search will appear.

    Spotlight is another way to search your Mac. It's the magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner of your menu bar. Ht command=space to activate

    I must admit Apple could try to simplify COMMAND-F...

    Most people simply want to find a document by its name on a particular volume, if they don't want to use Spotlight, and the find "Window" seems too cluttered for a simple find IMHO.
