Default Hotkey for "Find again"

In MS Word 2003, when I want to find some text I do this:

CTRL F, then enter a search string, then press Find Next

(1) How can I "Find Again" by using a hotkey instead of clicking the
button?

(2) Could such a hotkey be made to work even if the Find window is
closed?

I don't know of a keyboard shortcut, but you can close the Find dialog and
use the browse buttons at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar, which have
the Find Next and Find Previous function after you have used the Find
dialog.

If you haven't done any edits after executing the Find, then the Repeat
Command key (F4) should do just that too.

I believe it won't, though, Terry. Handily, F4 *doesn't* repeat Find Next.
This makes it convenient to use the browse arrows to Find Next, then F4 to
repeat any action (such as a replacement or paste) that was performed after
the previous find.

When the browse buttons change their function, so do the hotkeys for the
browse buttons, which are Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+PageDown.

Ah, good point. I usually just click the buttons with the mouse, as I can do
that with my right hand while clicking F4 with my left.

Shift+F4 is RepeatFind. Actually, I assigned it to F3 since I don't like
having to press a Shift key to use it.
