    Restoring AutoCorrect to 0365/Word 2016 context menu

    In Word 2013, MS removed useful autocorrect options from the right-click (context) menu, eliminating the ability to add a word to AutoCorrect on-the-fly. However, with the help of a Lounger, I was able to find a template to add to my Startup folder that restored the functionality. MS have done it again: my Office 365 subscription recently updated to Office 2016 and broke the autocorrect template in the process. The template I used for 2013 has not been updated. Does anyone know where to find a comparable hack for Word 2016? Many, many thanks in advance! --CJ

    The only one I know of is from Greg Maxey. I have no reason to think it would not work in Word 2016 as well.

    Hey folks -

    I want to let you know that the Office team is planning to restore right-click access to AutoCorrect Options, starting with Word 2016. If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you should see this change in a future update.

    - Anneliese from the Office team
