Speed up Your Typing with AutoCorrect

MS Word’s AutoCorrect feature corrects typos and misspellings as they occur. For example, if you 
accidentally type “teh,” Word changes it to “the.” The feature saves you time as you’re working on your document. It also helps you eliminate errors that you might otherwise miss.
AutoCorrect is also used to apply special formatting. For example (c) is changed to the copyright symbol.

Like many of Word’s features, you can customize AutoCorrect. You may want to assign abbreviations to frequently typed names, addresses, or terminology.

To customize AutoCorrect in Word, follow these steps:

1. In 2007, click the Office button, in later versions, click the File tab.
2. Select Options
3. Click Proofing in the left pane
4. Click the AutoCorrect Options button
5. Select the AutoCorrect tab
6. In the box labeled Replace type the abbreviation
7. In the box labeled with enter the full text
8. Click Add
9. Click OK
