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.

    I'm puzzled. AND is the default. Test (all questions with bounty and support): meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/support+bounty Nov 21 '09 at 20:08
  • @John: I think @nikos is talking about keyword searching, not tag searching. 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?

  • @nikos: Hear hear! The utter lack of an "and" keyword makes the search intolerable and/or useless sometimes.

This is now possible. See Jeff's explanation.
