I'm trying to assign a single key (F2) to the "find" command, but I cannot find it in the list of commands.

As you can see here, I can see the "find" command when it comes to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar:

But when it comes to assigning keyboard shortcuts, the "find" command is nowhere to be found:

I'm assuming that the reason it is not displaying it is because it has a built-in CTRL+F shortcut, but I want to change that.

In short: how can I assign F2 to the "find" command?

Office 2003 shows it as EditFind, so it's probably listed in 2007 as HomeFind. (I don't have a copy of 2007, so I'm not 100% sure about that.) – Davidw May 2 '13 at 1:37
@Davidw - Thanks. That was it. It's listed as editFind. Go figure. If you post this as an answer, I'll accept it. – MegaHit May 2 '13 at 1:40

It's listed by the section that it is part of in the ribbon, so it would be EditFind.
