Keyword Search Tips

How it Works

You tell the search service what you are looking for by typing in keywords or questions in the search box. The search responds by giving you a list of all the articles related to those keywords or questions, with the most relevant content appearing at the top of the list.

Keyword Search Tips

Use More Words
The easiest way to narrow your search and the first thing you should try is to simply use more words in your query. The greater detail you provide, the better the KnowledgeStor search engine is able to find precisely what you are looking for.

Include or Exclude Certain Words or Clarify a Term
To make sure that a specific word is always included in your search results, place the plus (+) sign before the keyword in the search box. To make sure that a specific word is always excluded from your search results, place a minus (-) sign before the keyword in the seach box.

Examples:To find articles that contain the word windows but not the word Microsoft, try +windows -microsoft. To find articles about operating systems, excluding UNIX, try operating systems -unix

Note: Insert at least one space before the plus or minus sign.

Expand Your Search Using Wildcards
You can use a question mark (?) to represent individual characters of a word

Example:To find all articles containing the words internet and intranet, try int??net

Or you can also use an asterisk (*) to substitute zero or more characters.

Example:To find all articles containing the words economics, economical, and economic, try economic*

Use "All" to Return All KnowledgeStor Articles
To retrieve a list of all KnowledgeStor articles, type the word all in the search box.

Do Not Worry About Capitalization
Search terms are not case-sensitive.
