I need to select some text in Notepad, Word, and every app i need and be able to lookup that phrase in Google.

Thank you

Not for nothing do not understand what you want to do. Maybe You explain a little bit more precise .. .

What exactly is "all Windows context menus" what do you mean?

PS. Everything can be put into the context menu, if needed.

I see this as a 2 part problem:

1. You need to copy the selected text to the clipboard or store in a variable.

2. You need to put that variable in the search string.

 

If you do not specify a browser to launch the URL, then your default browser would be used. Here is a sample Google url:

 

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=notepad

 

So the "hard" part is to determine how to get selected text to appear after q= in the URL.
