When it comes to writing, I always like to be productive with my time. Thankfully, Microsoft Word makes that incredibly easy with the built-in AutoCorrect feature. AutoCorrect is very similar to TextExpander, in that it will complete your abbreviation into a word/phrase. Here’s how:

  1. Open up Microsoft Word from your Applications folder.
  2. Go up to Tools in the menubar and select “AutoCorrect” from the drop-down menu.
  3. A pop-up window will appear presenting you will the settings for AutoCorrect.
  4. In the middle of the window, look for an empty field titled “Replace” above it.
  5. Type in the abbreviation or word that you would like to use.
  6. In the empty field to the right of that, titled “With”, correctly type in what you want Microsoft Word to replace your abbreviation or word with.
  7. Once you’re finished up with that click on the “Add” button and choose OK to close the window.
  8. Hope that made your experience with Microsoft software on the Mac a better one!
