The search screen consists of two sections: Content Search and History Search.
For searching content, type a word in the Keyword(s) box, check exact phrase as your option in “search for”, full text as option in “keywords in” and whatever item you need in “Content Type”. Select the number of “Results per page” as 25 and with “Rating” All. Click on Search and then the search system searches for the exact keyword in the text of all its contents. Every time you do a search, that number is subtracted from the total number of downloads that you purchased.
