Windows Logo + F11 works in IE and Netscape as well. Always has.

Opening the Find dialog in IE (and most Windows applications) is done by the more commonly known shortcut CTRL+F.

in Firefox, to open the find dialogue, use the ' button. (It is the one directly to the left of the Enter key. It is the Quotes key '")

Nobody really knows those keyboard commands because there are so many to remember. Remember that is whythey invented mouses. So most of those shortcuts on the keyboards are poopy. Except for the win+tab and win+L.

You must be young and naive. Let me correct that a bit:

THERE IS NO MANUAL FOR WOMEN!!! THAT'S THE PROBLEM!!!

Of course, even if there was a manual, I wouldn't read it. It's much more fun to figure it out as you go, and if she's really interested in you, she'll help you out.
