I was naming a soundtrack folder which always contains the name of the score and the composer. While highlighting the folder I accidentally right clicked and an option called "Look Up" was selected.

A small pop up text box appeared. On top it said Wikipedia and below it was a mini bio of the composers name I highlighted. Pretty damn cool!

It is an option on both Macs and PC's? Is the look up actually coming from Wikipedia website, or a built in dictionary on my computer? I never noticed this option before, and have no idea of the mechanics behind this.

Edit: Here's a screen cap example. Here Dictionary and Wikipedia notations pop up.

I don't have this option, no. I'm a regular Windows user.

I just noticed this lately on my mac…I think it may be a mac thing?

I don't know. Haven't used a PC in ages.

Thanks for the replies. I'm on a Mac, so I guess it's a Mac thing.

Yeah, I'm on a PC and didn't see this anywhere. Never heard of it before, but looks like a neat little feature.
