OS X Dictionary/Thesaurus

In most Macintosh applications, if you spell a word incorrectly, it gets underlined in red (you can turn this off). This is part of the operating system. You can right-click (or control-click) on any word to look it up in OS X’s dictionary/thesaurus.

What I didn’t know is that if you simply put your mouse pointer over any word, press and hold the Apple+Control+D keys, a dictionary/thesaurus pops up. Very handy.
