WORD 2007 TIP: HOW TO USE SHORTCUTS FOR SPELL-CHECK
Spell-check has been around for years; however, it just keeps getting better! Microsoft Office 2007 Spell-check is even more intuitive and easy-to-use. You'll find Spell-check by clicking on the Review Tab located on the Ribbon, and then select Spelling and Grammar from the Proofing Group. If you don't use Spell-check very often, you may have trouble remembering which Tab to click on (I know that I do).
As a trainer, I've learned that each individual works differently. That's why I like to present different methods of performing the same task, especially if it can save time and help a student work more efficiently.
I personally think it's much easier to simply press the F7 key to initiate Spell-check. That's because I favor keyboard shortcuts. Some students prefer to create customize toolbars with their favorite features. In Word 2007, you can't customize the Ribbon, however you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar:
1. Start MS Word 2007
2. Go to the Customize Quick Access Toolbar button
(It's located at the top left of the screen and it looks like a small arrow with a bar on top of it.)
3. Select Spelling & Grammar from the list.
4. You should see a Spelling & Grammar button appear on the Quick Access Toolbar.
5. The next time you want to use SpellCheck, just click on the new button you created.
Both of these shortcuts will save you time to help you work more efficiently!
