Finding text in Chrome web browser

If you are looking for some text on a web page using Google Chrome, you can search for the text by hitting the control key and the 'f' key at the same time. Chrome tells you this when you click on the options, which is the three dots in the upper right corner. However, I have run into some frustration when using this feature, because if you navigate to a different page and hit the same keys, it will not work unless you retype the text that you are looking for.

However, I inadvertently found a workaround. Hitting control plus 'g' searches for the same text again.

There are many shortcut keys available in Chrome which most people will not know about. This website talks about them: https://www.computerhope.com/shortcut/chrome.htm
