If you need to edit a document, or write a quick draft and check spelling later, here’s a quick tip to run a spell check with keyboard shortcuts.
Microsoft Word does a fairly decent job fixing common spelling mistakes with AutoCorrect. But sometimes, you’ll need to edit another person’s document or write a quick draft and check the spelling later. Being that we love Keyboard Shortcuts, here’s a quick tip for running a spell check Keyboard Kung fu style.
Spell Check Keyboard Shortcut for Microsoft Word
Hit Alt + F7 on your keyboard, and it will start with the first misspelled word. If the first highlighted word at the top of the list is correct, just hit Enter. Or you can arrow to the correct one, ignore it, or Add to Dictionary.
Hit Alt + F7 again, and it will go to the next misspelled word. If you practice keyboard Kung fu, this makes correcting spelling mistakes in Word much easier.
This should work with every version of Microsoft Word, at least with 2003 and higher.
