In Microsoft Word, is there a way to keep the Autocorrect window open while typing and creating a Word document so that I can add word corrections without Going to File/Options/Proofing/Autocorrect, each time?

Microsoft Word Proofing option

You fix the mistake, but you've lost your flow, your idea. To avoid that distraction, you can turn spell check off, then check to spell manually when you're done writing. Here's how.

Click File > Options > Proofing, clear the Check spelling as you type box, and click OK.

To turn spell check back on, repeat the process, and select the Check spelling as you type box.

To check to spell manually, click Review > Spelling & Grammar.

But do remember to run spell-check. Spelling and grammar errors can seriously undermine what you're trying to say, especially when your boss, your teacher, or that person in HR sees them.

Kind Regards,

This is not an answer to my question....It's not a matter of spell checking.. Can you or can't you keep the Autocorrect window open while working?
