so for me to find the definition of a word, I can't just highlight it and right click it and then click the "define" option. I have to first click the extension up on my extension bar, then exit out of it, then highlight the word and click "define". I usually only have to do this the first time once I open edge, or if I havent used the extension in a while. Also, if the word youre trying to define is not in its most basic root form, it uses the root of the word in question to define it, so you'll have to highlight just the root word to define it.

Right click context menu doesn't work on ALL websites, but it does on most that I tried. Not on this page though.

Lousy, you have to open this extension and type every word you want. It doesn't allow you to just highlight and do right click.
