Fixing unintended auto-corrects in Office

Generally speaking, the Auto-Correct feature in Microsoft Office is great in fixing your typing mishaps. But depending on the industry you work in, there are certain acronyms that are constantly mistaken by Auto-Correct as misspellings. Here’s how you can fix that…

Using one of the Office programs (I’m using Word), go to File > Options, and click on Proofing > AutoCorrect Options:


In the list of autocorrections that Office will make, find your acronym that you want to leave in place when you use it. In my case, I want to keep HSA as is, without it being changed to HAS. Highlight that line, click Delete, and then click OK:


All your HSAs will now be safe from autocorrection.
