Using the Research Task Pane
Before you finish your work for the day, Peter suggests that you use the Research task
pane to look up information on plants sold at Long Meadow Gardens. The Research
task pane provides a number of research tools, including a thesaurus, an Internet search
engine, and access to the Encarta Encyclopedia and Dictionary. To take full advantage of
these options, your computer must be connected to the Internet. To get started, Peter asks
you to use the Research task pane to find the Latin name for “red maple.”
To look up “red maple” in the Research task pane:
1. Verify that your computer is connected to the Internet. If your computer is not connected
to the Internet, read, but do not attempt to perform, the following steps.
2. Use the Find command to locate and select the text “red maple”. Close the Find and
Replace dialog box.
3. Click the Research button on the Standard toolbar. The Research task pane opens. See
Figure 2-32. The term you selected in the document appears in the Search for text box,
ready for you to look up the definition. Next, you need to specify the reference source you
want to search.
