Disabling or Hiding Automatic Spelling and Grammar Checking

Automatic spelling and grammar checking isn't everyone's cup of tea. Many people appreciate the way it catches typos and other inadvertent errors as they make them—without going through the trouble of a formal spelling or grammar check. Others find it distracting and want to turn it off immediately—especially the grammar checker, which has improved but is still far from perfect. The feature also slows down Word slightly.

If you prefer not to use automatic spell checking or automatic grammar checking, you can easily turn off one or both of them. Choose Tools, Options, and click the Spelling&Grammar tab. Then, to disable automatic spell checking, clear the Check Spelling as You Type check box. To disable automatic grammar checking, clear the Check Grammar as You Type check box. When you're finished, click OK.
