Before I reinstalled windows, I was able to type "mw" and press tab to search the dictionary website through the address bar. However, I cannot do it now, how can I activate this again?

Right-click on the nav-bar and pick "Edit search engines..." Click on "Add..." and enter the following:

Name: Dictionary
Keyword: mw

To add it just press enter.

Once you added it, simply type its keyword mw before your search string and Chrome will use it.
