Search suggestions

Search suggestions are popular searches that start with the same characters as your query.

The suggestions list appears beneath the search bar and changes as you enter new letters in the search bar. When you see a suggestion that matches your query, you can select it by using the mouse or the Up or Down keys. To go to the search results, press Enter.

You can make your query more specific by adding text to the selected suggestion.

Yandex Browser provides answers to common questions in the search suggestion list. For example, you can find out the depth of Lake Baikal or without going to the search results. You can also enter a phone number that you got a call from into the SmartBox. If this number has been used for advertising purposes and there has been enough online feedback about this number, you will see a warning in the suggestions.

If you make a typo in the site address, Yandex Browser may offer corrections. To do this:

  1. Click   → Settings → General settings.
  2. Under Search, deselect Offer corrections for typos in site addresses.

If you don't want to see suggestions in Yandex Browser, disable them:

  1. Click   → Settings → General settings.
  2. Under Search, deselect Show suggestions when entering addresses and queries.

Search page

To search a page, use one of the following methods:

  • Press Ctrl + F (in Windows and Linux) or  + F (in macOS).
  • Click   → Advanced → Search.

Usually, page search in Yandex Browser searches for all grammatical forms of a given word. For example, if you enter "teach" into the search bar, Yandex Browser will also show words such as “teaching”, “teacher”, and so on.

If you want to find specific grammar forms of a word without any related forms, select the Exact match option in the search window.

Note. The browser can automatically switch the language of the keyboard used to enter the search query. If it doesn't, click   → Settings → Tools → Search on page and check whether the Switch the keyboard layout and search again if the initial search fails option is enabled.
