Editors' review

While this tool is oh-so-helpful in searching for information via Answers.com without interrupting your work, results aren't always only one click away. 1-Click Answers provides two search options: you can enter a keyword or phrase into the Answerbar, a discreet bar that docks on the side of your desktop, or you can use Alt-Click to pull up a small window for a brief summary.

The great thing about 1-Click Answers is that you can search for information directly from an e-mail, a Microsoft Office program, or browser. Our searches never came up empty, and the information on Answers.com was thorough. The Answerbar worked like a charm, yielding quick results each time we performed a search. The Alt-Click function, however, was a disappointment, often producing a blank window that took a few seconds to load. Also, we found ourselves repeatedly hitting Alt-Click. It does give you the option of changing the hot key combo, but you still have to incorporate a mouse click, which didn't help the situation.

We ran into a glitch while performing a search in a Word document that caused multiple browser windows to open, but uninstalling and reinstalling the program seemed to fix the problem. Even though sluggish behavior and functionality quirks are minuses for 1-Click Answers, the easy-to-use Answerbar is a winner. By bringing a wealth of information to your desktop, this free tool is a worthwhile download for any user.

    "The alt-click key isn't compatible with Firefox 15.0."

    August 29, 2012   |   By bluhrig

    Version: 1-Click Answers 2.4

    Pros

    Type in a word--get a definition. When I used Internet Explorer, I could place my cursor in front of a word, click the mouse and the correct spelling would show up. That's worth a 5.

    Cons

    Not compatible with later versions of Firefox.

    Summary

    If you want a dictionary when you are on a web page, this is a good one. If you want the spell check feature, check first to see if it will work with your browser.

    "One of the most useful programs I've installed."

    December 15, 2010   |   By TomOrr_ow

    Version: 1-Click Answers 2.4

    Pros

    Quickest way to get an answer about just about anything. I've been using the 1- Click Answers program since it's beginnings as GuruNet. Under Bob Rosenschein's leadership the company has stayed on a successful course and kept the software up to date.

    Cons

    Once in a while a quirk will slow things down a bit but these are few and far between.

    Summary

    Invaluable tool for writers and researchers.

    "1-Click Answers is just plain SMART!"

    July 02, 2010   |   By PacificBlu2

    Version: 1-Click Answers 2.4

    Pros

    It's everything good; free, small & out of the way little tiny arrow-tab at the bottom right corner of your screen - you click on it to pull it out and fill in the blank with whatever you need to know about! It's just a slick, smart, little tool.

    Cons

    there are no cons - cause you can even make it to be a little tiny window that pops up with your answer, or a full-screen window. Lots of options. Your choice. And it's LOADED with information - on anything! There simply are NO cons!

    Summary

    bottom line? Well it says it all above. It's just one of the smartest, coolest, and smallest little tools that can come in so handy on your screen. You can even opt to make it do a little "woosh" sound when you click on the arrow to make the pop out so you can fill in the blank with your question or word! Something so small, so out-of-the-way, yet does such big things to help a person out. It's the ultimate REFERENCE TOOL. Everyone should download that little jewel - yes, 1-click Answers. It's the bomb.

    "I recommend 1-Click Answers to everyone!"

    January 11, 2010   |   By ccberquist

    Version: 1-Click Answers 2.4

    Pros

    The answerbar that stays on top of all screens in use is the quickest, most efficient search tool I have ever used.

    Cons

    It's free, so I see no "cons!"

    Summary

    As a professional medical editor, I recommend 1-Click Answers to everyone! Quick, easy, efficient! When entering a medical term phonetically I nearly always am provided with a list of possiblities, with one of them usually being the correct term (which I can then click on for further information)!
