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