When I use the search bar to perform a keyword search for previous questions, is it possible (for example) to append something to my keywords so that my search will include questions that have been put on hold?

There seems to be no direct way to only search for questions 'on hold', but one can use the search word closed:yes to find all closed questions (that haven't been deleted).

For an indirect way to only search for questions 'on hold', one could try the search closed:yes duplicate:no migrated:no.

More generally, to learn how to search, click on Advanced Search Tips in the right margin of the Phys.SE search box page, or visit the help center for a more complete set of search options.
