Bookmarklet, what is it? Wikipedia says this is a bookmark in the browser, behind which there is a small program.

Don’t worry, as difficult as it sounds, you don’t have to program anything…

Please create a bookmark in your browser in the bookmark bar, e.g. with the name oO and enter the following text as address:

javascript:(function() { var targetUrl = ""; var input = window.prompt("Suche in Enterprise-Hilfe:"); if (input) + input) })();

If it doesn’t work… sometimes it is necessary to restart the browser, and popups must be allowed for “” so that everything works properly.

On any web page, you can then click on the bookmark oO to open an input field where you can enter the desired term.
The enterprise online help is then searched via google.
