Integrate WordWeb with Microsoft word - tip

WordWeb is a comprehensive English thesaurus and dictionary for Windows.

While working on Microsoft word, one can fetch the meaning of a word from WordWeb or can replace a word with one of its synonym from WordWeb in the following way:

First select the word you want to look up, then press the keyboard hotkey (default: Ctrl+Alt+W) or "Ctrl+right click" which will pop up WordWeb with the meaning of the word. There will be a Replace button on WordWeb window that you can press to paste in a selected synonym.

** This would require the WordWeb application to be running.
