Search field for networks

We definitly need it.
Don’t understand why it is not implemented.
I really think it’s the missing part of the UI.

Hello @Hamed3,

The idea was suggested in September 2022. Please take a look at the following post:

Description:
Please add a search field in the list of networks

Purpose:
I do a lot of testing on various platforms and dapps on various networks. There are more than 30 networks added to my MetaMask, and every time I have to scroll through the list of blockchains for quite a long time. The search field will solve the problem of searching and speed up switching between networks.

Hello,

Something missing from my point of view when using MetaMask app is a search function to select the network to use. Today with the multiplication of the available networks, something could be improve fro security and usability in this part.

Thanks for this great application and sorry for asking forever more.

Regards

I was scrubbing the list of feature request to see if anyone has suggested; the addition of a Character Search box right before “Assets” or where appropriate; even with just showing coins with a balance option; coin list’s can be like scrolling a marathon list; Just a thought to add improve the processing of a transaction. They might just tell me; don’t be lazy, just go to expanded view and press ctlr+f … but that just adds a step instead of scrolling for dayz. Thank you for such a good resource. ( I’m not really just lazy, just a 90% disabled veteran who is sick, lame and lazy, cripple and crazy.

As for the meantime while we are waiting for a massive vote before this feature can be implemented, at least can you guys make the list of networks sorted alphabetically? As more networks are being added with the recent appearances of different kind of networks and protocols, the list is growing. However, as you add new network, it was not being added as on the top or the bottom of the list, it was being added randomly in the list of the networks in the wallet, and because the window is fixed size also, it makes it much more difficult to scroll through the list of networks. At least if it’s sorted alphabetically, you know where to select…

I have over 35 networks added in MetaMask, it is painful to get my testnet stuff done because i have to search each time to switch networks as well the font size is much larger as if we can make fonts small more than 6 networks would be visible at the time of scrolling through networks. well much needed feature that is. please MetaMask do something about it.

Description:
When we have so many networks added in MetaMask, it is difficult to find a network from the list, as the networks are not arranges in alphabetical order, also there is no search option. It would be great if MetaMask can have a search network feature.

Purpose:
It will help to find and connect to a network quickly
