Word count within selected text

I once serendipitously found a popup menu that displayed selected text. I can’t find it again. Anyone know where I should look?

That was most probably the contextual menu, which you can invoke by right-clicking with your mouse on the selected text. The word count for the selection should appear in the menu.

Yes! That was it! Thank you! I don’t know why I failed to even think about the “right-click” or “ctrl” idea. Brain lapse…
