Search results only show first result. How can I view successive results?

Hi. I love Calibre, I've been using it for some years now and it is a great tool. So thank you Kovid for creating and maintaining it.

I'm guessing it is me who doesn't know how to use this function properly but every time I run a search by keyword(s), Calibre only shows me 1 result (it takes me to (I assume) the first result that matches my search criteria. But how can I get a list of all the books that meet my search criteria? Or how can I move to the next result? I have been looking for this for a long time and haven't been able to find a way to do this yet.

Thanks

You probably need to adjust these settings

The Show a quick toggle… setting will put a button on the search bar you can use to control the mode - Highlight or Filter, F3 and Shift+F3 traverse next and previous in the list when your in Highlight mode.

Thank you so much for this. This did it for me. After so many years, I can finally search books without having to manually scroll through all the results until I find the highlighted ones.
