You can avoid the embarrassment of distributing a document full of misspellings, incorrectly used words, or poor grammar even if you don’t have a proofreader or an editor at your disposal. Word comes to the rescue by discreetly pointing out your spelling errors, word usage problems, and grammatical no-no’s. When you see one of those helpful little squiggles under a word or phrase, you can choose what you want to do to correct the mistake—if it really is a mistake.
Right-click a red squiggle to see one or more suggestions for correcting the error.
