Hi guys! I am new in this community.

 

I just want to add my suggestion/concern about the built-in dictionary on the newest version of Microsoft Edge. I know it was available in the old version and I used a lot (as I came from an Apple environment) to define words in the web. I miss so much this "look up" functionality after selecting a word and to be able to read the definition in a specific language (e.g. If the article is in English or German the definition is shown in that language as well).

 

I really hope that the built-in dictionary will be able again soon!

 

Cheers,

 

Rafael

Hi there, you are welcome to the Microsoft Edge Insider Community Hub!

Nice suggestion. I would like to add to this suggestion that if we double-click a word, then the built-in dictionary would show the definition in a popup below the word with the speaker button which shows how the word is pronounced.

 

Anyone who likes this suggestion, please send feedback about it through the in-app feedback tool (Alt+Shift+I) in Microsoft Edge to make it a part of Microsoft Edge in the future.
