Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I am using the following query (in the top-right search field): [worklight] is:question answers:0.

Some of the results are marked with [duplicate].

Is it possible to exclude these? I could not see a proper option for this in the search help section.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Bear in mind that duplicates can be very useful when searching - more than a few times I've found the post I'm looking for, in spite of forgetting the terminology used in it, by following a chain of duplicates. – Shog9 Oct 10 '13 at 20:48
@Shog9, you are right, but for my particular need this is of no consequence. Thanks, though! – Idan Adar Oct 10 '13 at 20:49

You can use duplicate:no. To exclude all closed questions use closed:no
