I read about adding tag names and stuff in search terms, but how can I search for two keywords in AND fashion? (I.e. both keywords appear in some discussion, not as an expression.)

For example: say I want to see all discussions that are about both apples and oranges.

Tis a dupe, but I can't find it right now – ChrisF Nov 21 '09 at 19:18
I'm puzzled. AND is the default. Test (all questions with bounty and support): – Ladybug Killer Nov 21 '09 at 20:08
@John: I think @nikos is talking about keyword searching, not tag searching. – RichieHindle Nov 22 '09 at 11:14

dupe? that referenced thread is philosophical, and talks about TAGs not keywords. Try it, search for "IHTMLElement hidden" and you'll get a jumble of results that have only one keyword, there is no algorithm bringing discussions with both keywords near the top It's such a basic principle of search I must be missing something? – user139314 Nov 22 '09 at 17:40
@nikos: Hear hear! The utter lack of an "and" keyword makes the search intolerable and/or useless sometimes. – abeger Jan 22 '10 at 22:22

This is now possible. See Jeff's explanation.
