The spell checker is a powerful tool in Microsoft Office, but do not get your AutoCorrect functionality through Windows as it does on Android or iOS.

How to Enable Autocorrect (SpellChecker) Everywhere in Windows

It’s probably more accurate with a physical keyboard on the computer with the virtual on the phone, but everyone still has typos. Here’s how to get self-correction in all areas of your PC. You need the free tool AutoHotkey (AHK) for this trick. Aside from simply reassigning keys, this powerful tool can automate complex functions and enhance productivity in ways you never thought possible.

Go ahead and download the AutoCorrect script, save it anywhere on your computer. Once you have installed AHK, simply double-click to run it and you will see an icon in the system tray alerts you to its presence.

To edit or add wing list of corrections, AHK will find the green icon in the system tray, click it and select “Edit this script.” It is probably wise to set the script to run at startup so you do not have to enable it manually every time you boot.

That’s! The script contains thousands of common typos – will be deleted and replaced with the correct word when you misspell a. If you look closely, you can see the script instantly rewrite the word, saving you lots of time.
