Set a Search Shortcut Key

You can set a keyboard shortcut to bring the In-Product Search window quickly. The In-Product Search window helps you locate a specific feature in your Norton product. When you start typing on the In-Product Search window, you get relevant search suggestions that you can use to find the information faster. You can hover your mouse over the search suggestions to see a brief explanation about the feature. You can also change the settings of a feature from the search results.

By default, the shortcut key is set as Ctrl + F and works only when your Norton product has focus. See the steps below to change this setting.

Set a Search Shortcut Key

  1. In the Norton product main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click Administrative Settings.

  3. In the Search Shortcut Key row, move the switch to On.

  4. Click the arrow and then choose a key that you want to assign for in-product search.

  5. Do one of the following:

    • For the shortcut key to work only when your Norton product has focus, uncheck the Global option.

    • For the shortcut key to work even when your Norton product has no focus, check the Global option.

  6. Click Apply, and then click Close.
