Re: how can I have the text in the search window auto select
Thanks so much for your response.
Let me try to explain more clearly.
I spend 5-6 hours using theWord every day. I usually close my search window when studying or doing translation work. This is what my layout looks like.

When I need to look something up (which is very frequently, sometimes a few dozen times an hour), I press F3 to open the floating search window. See below.

However as you can see above, the text in the search window isn't selected. So I either need to select and delete the text with the mouse, or by pushing F3 one more time.

If I fail to push F3 the 2nd time, I end up just adding to the text that is already in the search window. It's not a major problem, but it usually occurs several times a day, and I was wondering if there is some toggle code or switch that could make the text in the search box automatically selected immediately when F3 is pressed the first time.
Thanks again for your time.
