As per the title, how can I search only among my questions and answers?

I'd want to do this because I consider my questions and answers my own personal knowledge base and I'd like to be able to constrain the search within that.

  • I'm actually shocked this isn't in the FAQ, or at least, I don't see an entry on searching your own entries in the FAQ.

  • @JollyOldSaintNicholas That's fine. I think it will be more useful, if there is a tool to allow searching among the questions I favorite too. or making it a separate search option.

Guess what - the feature exists.

In the search box, put user:me and any results will be limited to yourself.

See on the search tips page, in the "Advanced Super Ninja Search Options" section.

  • Wow! wonderful, but does it extended to the favorites questions?

    I'm talking about search features, not only listing. Suppose, I need a snippet of code regarded in question I asked or I answered which it is meant by "arrays of teams" I want to be able to search and get only the results found in my questions and answers.

  • @Oded I tried [user:sємsєм] array and [user:me] array but there is no results (in my stackoverflow account)
