Get Smarter with Just One Click

The title for this tip sounds like something you would hear on an infomercial, but it happens to be true. The next time you’re reading a document (it can be an email, a text document, a webpage, etc.), and run across a word or topic you want to know more about, just Control-click it and select Look Up in Dictionary from the contextual menu. By default, Dictionary will search for your word in the New Oxford American Dictionary, the Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus, the Apple Dictionary, and Wiki-pedia, then it will display any results it finds.
