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 at groovyPost, here’s a quick tip to run a spell check Keyboard Kung fu style.
Spell Check Keyboard Shortcut for Microsoft Word
Just 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 2003 and higher.
