Using AutoCorrect

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


Do you frequently misspell a word?

Microsoft Word includes a feature called "AutoCorrect". AutoCorrect automatically changes a misspelled word into the proper spelling automatically. Word already has a list of commonly misspelled words (Example: teh is changed automatically to the).

This How-To Article shows you how to add an entry to the AutoCorrect list.

Using AutoCorrect

1. Right click a misspelled word in your document.

2. From the menu that appears, point to "AutoCorrect", and select the correct spelling of the misspelled word.

3. Word will add the misspelling, and the correct spelling to the AutoCorrect list.

Note: If an entry already exists for the misspelled word, Word will ask you if you would like to replace the entry that already exists for the word. Click "Yes" if you would like to replace the entry, or click "No" to keep the entry as it is.

4. Now, when you type the misspelling of the word you just added to the AutoCorrect list, Word will automatically change the word to the correct spelling.
