Word: Autocorrect Spelling

Click on the Tools menu and choose the AutoCorrect option. This dialog allows you to automatically replace any series of characters, with another set of characters. For instance, how do you spell RELIEF? Well, if you always seem to flip the I and the E, you can simply put the Wrong spelling of the word, in the Replace field, and put the correct spelling of the word in the With field and Word will auto-magically fix the spelling immediately after you type it on the page!!

You can use this to type abbreviations for commonly entered text as well. Such as “mye@” could be replaced with the “myemail@myemail.com” address, or anything like that. There are already a bunch of corrections built in, but you are free to add as many as you need.

Using the Menu Shortcuts, mentioned in an earlier tip, you can also get to the AutoCorrect screen by pressing Alt, then T, then A. They don’t have to be pressed at the same time, but in succession.

This option is available in Excel and Outlook too!
