Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

Question: Big Brother Is Clicking Here? Every so often I hear or read that Government / Big Business / The Trilateral Commission / AOL / Mom / (fill in the blank) is tracking everything I do on the Internet. Is this possible? Is it likely? Should I start packing for Bolivia now? - Mark Pearson, <pearsonm@aol.com>

Answer: Yes. I just blew the cover on TCP, so it's all over. [GF]
