Searching Options

Hi all, I'm hoping someone can answer this question for me.  When searching with,for example, Google, there is the option to display worldwide or only UK sites; I cannot see this option when using the Norton Toolbar and this is seriously annoying me to the point that I am reverting to Google. It is SO annoying having to scroll through dozens of sites picking UK based ones.

Re: Searching Options

Can you add UK after the search term?  That might narrow things down a bit.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hi Krusty  

Now why didn't I think of something so simple?????  I was assuming it would be somewhere in the options; I have only tried on one search and only quickly looked at one page of results but it seemed to help!  I'll try it out properly later, but seems I may owe you BIG thanks for saving my sanity, not to mention heaps of time!

Hi  CraftyCas,

I'm glad it helped.  

I don't use Norton Safe Search but I was told a few years ago I could narrow searches on Google by adding AU (for Australian search results) after what I wanted to look up and it worked.

Cheers!
