Use browser find with Ctrl-F as default.

Is there a way to set the default behavior of typing Ctrl-F to use the Browser search function?

I am already aware of both Ctrl-F and Ctrl-Shift-F behavior in smartsheet. I simply prefer using Chrome's built in search. It's faster and had nice obvious highlighting.

I can work around by clicking the three dots and clicking "Find" in the menu, but it would be nice to get my hotkey back.

    Let me know what browser you use and I can walk you through it
