Word cannot catch all mistakes and does not replace reading your paper, but using the spelling and grammar tools in Word can really save you time! Here's how:

  1. In the Ribbon, click on Review and select Spelling & Grammar.
  2. Word will now review your paper for spelling and grammar. If the program finds spelling mistakes, a dialog box or task pane appears with the first misspelled word found by the spelling checker.
  3. After you resolve each misspelled word, the program flags the next misspelled word so that you can decide what you want to do.
  4. After the program finishes flagging the spelling mistakes, it shows you the grammar mistakes. For each mistake, click an option in the Spelling and Grammar dialog box.
  5. You're done!
