Here’s A Tip: Now It’s Not Only “Smarties That Have The Answer” Thanks To Office 2016!

Have you ever had a document that is full of words and phrases that you really don’t understand? This happens to me all the time! 

I used to have to copy and paste the text I didn’t understand into Google and try and learn about it that way. Thankfully, those days are gone and with the release of Office 2016 I have just become smarter than I’d ever hoped.

This is all thanks to the Smart Lookup feature…

Firstly, here’s the long way of using Smart Lookup before I share my way of doing things – which are usually quicker and always smarter.

You can highlight the text and either use the Smart Lookup option on the Review Tab of The Ribbon or alternatively you can access it from the right-click menu.

I had no idea what “angiography” was before I used Smart Lookup!

Now I know what it is, how to pronounce it and see any related images or articles – genius!

You might think that’s smart but let’s make it smarter…

Put your cursor anywhere within the word and use the brilliant KeyTips shortcut of pressing, in this sequence, ALT R R

Alternatively, add it to the Quick Access Toolbar and make sure it is in position one and then, still with your cursor in the word, use the KeyTips shortcut of pressing, in sequence, ALT 1

I guarantee you will be smarter within minutes!

Here’s A Tip: Turn Back Time…

Have you ever downloaded a free trial version of software, loved it but then be either too tight or poor to buy the full version when the time limit expires? Me too but…

Here’s a tip…

If you are using a PC and the trial version of some software only lasts 30 days simply go into your settings and change the date on your computer clock!

I had heard of this before but didn’t think it would in any way work until the other day when I actually tried it and guess what? It works!

I can’t say it will work with everything but it’s surely worth a try, right?

So, over to Cher!
