# How to hide closed questions when searching for questions to answer

It seems many of the questions here end up closed. Having most of my searches consist largely of closed questions makes finding questions I can answer even harder and more tedious. (Rarely will will a title tell me if I can answer a question or not. I need to know the details inside)

When using the site search, you can search for questions with the is:q operator and for non-closed questions with closed:no: https://worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/search?q=is%3Aq+closed%3Ano
By itself, that isn't really useful, but of course you can add tags (e.g. [biology]) or other search terms in the mix.
