When Microsoft created the Ribbon for Word, it was based on the concept of placing more options in the front of the user. Most of the options are now more readily available with only one click.
Unfortunately, the AutoCorrect option was buried fairly deep into the menus, requiring several clicks to bring up the Dialog box.
What we’d like to do is add a shortcut to the Quick Access Toolbar so AutoCorrect is quickly available with one click.
Start by going to the Quick Access Toolbar, clicking so the menu appears. On the menu, select More Commands.
When the customize Ribbon dialog box appears, Click the Show Commands From box and select Commands Not in the Ribbon.
This will show all the command that are NOT on the Ribbon alphabetically in the left box and the command in the Quick Access Toolbar in the right box.
Scroll down to find the AutoCorrect Option – It will be the one with Lighting Bolt icon.
Click the Add button to place the AutoCorrect command in the Quick Access Toolbar. Then click OK.
The AutoCorrect button with icon has been added to the Quick Access Toolbar
AutoCorrect is now only a click away. You can see the steps in the video below.
