Keeping the text highlighted in the find what box

Occasional Visitor

I need help keeping text highlighted in the find what box. I'm not referring to highlighting a text with color or coloring the box that the text is in. I need the text to stay highlighted just the same as if I left clicked and scrolled across the text to highlight it. I am using a barcode scanner to find text in an excel file. When I open the find option I can type in information I am looking for or in my case I am scanning a barcode to enter that information for me. I need to  be able to scan a new barcode and replace the previously typed or scanned text without having to physically delete the information with backspace. The computer at my office is already setup this way so I know its possible, unfortunately I am having to use a personal laptop at the moment.
