Grammar Anyone?

Dennis Faas's picture

Lord alone knows that I am forever correcting grammar in documents even though MS Word has tried to fix it for me! If you have that same complaint, I can show you how to pick and choose which grammar rules MS Word uses to check your documents!

Follow the steps below:

  1. Click on Tools | Options.
  2. Click on the Spelling and Grammar tab.
  3. You can now select or deselect your options. You can use the drop-down list and choose to have MS Word check either Grammar Only or Grammar and Style.
  4. Click on Settings.
  5. If you select Grammar Only, you will only get the grammar portion and if you select Grammar and Style, you will be able to select choices from both parts of the list selected.
  6. You can now pick and choose which Grammar Rules you would like MS Word to use when checking your documents.
  7. When you are finished making your selections, click OK twice.

Now you are ready to have your document checked and you now know how to customize the selections to suit YOU.
