There were times when I was working in a spreadsheet and I had to do a quick internet search to understand some of the words in my cells.

Little did I know that in Excel 2016, there is a feature called Smart Lookup! Smart Lookup allows me to make word searches inside Excel!

Let us say we want to know more about these names in our spreadsheet:
