If you press CTRL + F (or F3) it opens up the "CTRL + F" search bar at the bottom of the browser. But in my experience, if I want to close that search bar, I have to manually do it by moving my mouse to the bottom right corner of the browser and clicking the search bar close button. In most applications that I ever used, I could press "CTRL + F" a second time to toggle the search off. Is there a shortcut key that I can use to toggle the search bar off so I don't have to keep manually closing it?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The Esc key will close the Find bar if the cursor is in the bar. If you made a selection in the page after running Find, you probably will need to focus the bar again with Ctrl+F before pressing Esc.

Thanks. I forgot to try the Esc key as it is not as intuitive as using CTRL + F again. Thanks for your help (again). Love you man.
