Default How to mouse over a word to open expanded text box

It's some years since i last used Word but i remember i used to be able to
select a Word in the text and cause a text box to open, this allowed space to
enter text and expand on the meaning of that word. The text box could then
be closed and activated later when reading the text by passing the mouse over
that word.

Trouble is i can't remember how to do it!

Anybody know?
