How to search globally?

Nowadays, I cannot search some keywords globally in the top search box if I locate in some project page. So I must skip to my profile page, then search it globally. This is tedious and annoying. So, can anyone tell me how to search globally in a quick way?

Hi @alex1990,

Thanks for being part of the Community Forum and for asking about this! 

The quickest way to do a global search is by triggering the scoped search and then clicking on the all results on GitHub link on the results page:

We do understand that this is not ideal. This is something that we’ve received feedback about, and we take that feedback seriously. Though I can’t promise anything or share any timeline, I can assure you that your feedback on this has been shared with the appropriate team as well.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
