Reader rating: 6 out of 10


When you are creating a document, you shouldn't overuse a word.  Microsoft Word includes a built in Thesaurus so you can find other alternative words.

Using the Thesaurus

1.  Highlight the word you want to find a synonym for.

2.  Right-click the word that you just highlighted.

3.  Point to synonyms, and select the word you would like to use in place of the highlighted word.

4.  For more information on the word you highlighted, select "Thesaurus..." from the list of synonyms.
