Searching sites via google or other engines


I’m trying to search google and other search engines and wondering what string to use in open url function.

For example, KM will copy a string from Notes or Office or any other document, put that in Google search and search a particular site; e.g. If I have a text “Shakespeare” in a document and if I press the hot key trigger, KM will copy that text and search Google for that item, like “Shakespeare”


Hey @skyblue,

Search for “search google” on the forum.

We’ve covered that quite a bit.

If you can’t figure it out then holler.


Here's an example of searching for selected text using Google Search in the Google Chrome browser. If the selection is a valid URL, then it just opens that URL.
