    I've been looking to the help files, and on Apple's knowledge base, but could not find any details on how to activate the services (like the recent Google search)

    Can somebody give me any directions in what I should do?
    Or what I overlooked?

    Thxs guys.

    Services

    Next to the Apple logo in the upper right corner.
    The Current Application pull-down menu has a submenu called services.

    In that menu you can: Make Sticky, disk copy, Net services, ...

    For me, all available options are marked gray.

    Ahhh...

    That menu lists the services that are available for the current selected item.

    For example, open a web page and then select some text on the page. Now go to that menu. You'll see that certain of those services are now enabled. You should be able to send the text to someone via Mail, etc. Its actually a very useful menu.

    I found it!
    Only Cocoa apps support this feature.
    carbon apps have not yet been written to take advantage of the systems' underlyings
