    Hi all,

    MSE is of course a great site, but the topic search is a bit tricky to use. Searching for 'E: 10/10' returns any results that contain '10'. Is there a way to get it to search for an exact string?

    Thanks.

    Fairly certain not and search is limited to 300 results. You can change the sort order, details below, which can be used to put the threads in day order (all the 1st together 2nd etc)

    or use a search engine that lets you search the site for an exact string
    (keep up to date which among many advantages is quicker and you usually don't need to use search)

    Yeah that's what I figured. They really should improve it. Thanks.
