As you know all Microsoft Office editions (Office 2010,2007 and the old 2003) have the well-known and useful dictionary which lets you translate and correct foreign words including your own language. Among the different features, such dictionary is also able to learn. In fact, when a new word is typed, the dictionary adds it to its list of available words and in some cases, if there are “too many” new words, a new custom dictionary is created, automatically. If for some reason, the dictionary (which is available in Office, Excel and Power Point) stops working properly, you can reset its features and restore it to the default settings. Let’s see how to achieve this result!
- Open Microsoft Office Word (for example).
- If you own Office 2003, then click Options on the Tools menu.
- If you own Office 2007, then click the Microsoft Office Button, and click Options.
- If you own Office 2010, then click File, and click Options.
- In Office 2003, click Custom Dictionaries on the Spelling & Grammar tab. In Office 2007 and Office 2010, click Proofing, and then click Custom Dictionaries under “When correcting spelling in Microsoft Office programs”.
- At this point, under the Custom Dictionaries section, click the CUSTOM.DIC and click delete it.
- Click OK and restart Office for the changes to take effect.
