How do you link the Thesaurus via Services to other apps?

When I downloaded the Thesaurus app it indicated that it could be linked to other apps via Services so that they could use it. If anyone knows how to do it I would appreciate the knowledge because it is a very fine Thesaurus and works perfectly in High Sierra 13.1!

In apps where you can select text, if you select a word, the Services menu will show this menu:
Look Up Selection in Thesaurus (Command-<)
If some text is already copied to the Clipboard and you select some text the Services menu will also show:
Replace Selection (Command-Shift-M)
These menu commands appear by default; if for some reason they don't, you can activate them: In System Preferences>Keyboard, tab to Shortcuts and select Services in the left column and check the two commands in the list of commands in the right column.
