The text string to be found in the item name.

Usage notes

Find is a main command only; it cannot be used as a line command.

Do not enclose the string or pattern in quotation marks.

Find starts the search from the second entry on the list and searches to the end of the list. If nothing is found, the search starts again from the top. If again nothing is found, the list does not change it position.
