AutoCorrect and Find and Replace

Learn how to use the AutoCorrect Word feature, as well as the Find and Replace Word feature, in this free lesson.

Using AutoCorrect

Word's AutoCorrect feature can automate some of the tedious tasks involved in creating documents. It can also replace common spelling and typing errors as you type.

If you use a lot of proper nouns or specific terms, you can store shorthand references in AutoCorrect. For example, instead of typing GCFLearnFree.org, you can store the letters GCF in AutoCorrect. Each time you type GCF, AutoCorrect automatically replaces it with GCFLearnFree.org.
