Default W2013: text search results not highlighted in scrollbar


In MS Word 2010, when I searched for some text, it highlighted both the text on page and the location in the scrollbar of a multi-page document. It does not highlight anything in the scroll bar in Word 2013. How do I return this functionality?
P.S. Forum search brought no similar topics.

By scrollbar I am assuming you mean the navigation pane on the left side of the screen, not the elevator on the right side.

Am I correct in that assumption or do you mean the scroll bar?

I don't have anything for a find highlighted on the scrollbar in Word 2010 or 2013.
Word 2013 did away with the scroll browse object on the scrollbar and that is not likely to return.

If, after you find something, you use Ctrl+PgDn, it will take you to the next text.

In the Navigation page, do you need to switch to the Results panel?

Dear Charles,

By scrollbar I mean the scroll bar, the one which is to the right of the page and the one which is generally X times smaller that the height of the screen, where X is the number of pages.

That's for the case when I know approximately in which part of the very big document the search term should be so that I don't try all 100 or something findings in the document one by one.

Sure, I could start searching from any place in the document, but highlighting would facilitate my work even more.

Ctrl+PgDn could be of use, thank you!

In the Navigation Pane (the one to the left of the page) I'm clear with the search results and the document structure.
