Googling in Mac apps, Five Mac Tips in Five Days, Part 2

Topics: Apple, Operating Systems

Google any word or phrase in any Apple application.

Right-click (or Control-click if you don't have a two-button mouse) on a word in any Apple app (you don't have to select the word first—just right-click on it); a contextual menu appears.
