We want to let you know that the Word team has heard your feedback, and they’re planning to restore right-click access to AutoCorrect options in Word 2016. If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you should see this change in a future update.
As always, thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it!OS commented
Ok, I have calmed down and almost immediately afterward discovered the quick way to find the autocorrect link again.
Instructions for word2016 running on win10:
1. right click any word with a red under-squiggle,
2. hover over the right pointing arrow/wedge to the right of any of the proffered correction options,
3. click "autocorrect options" which is at the bottom of the pick list that appears.
Surely they could (should!) have told us, as that is not intuitive at all. Why would anyone click through a spelling offer that is NOT what they want? My instructions do speed up work immensely by comparison to digging into the file menu, but it's still not what it should be,
MS, if you are listening, put "autocorrect options" back into the right-click menu!
