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!Benjamin S. commented
What in god's name was Microsoft thinking with eliminating this feature?! For heaven's sake, this is a basic feature of Word that I've relied upon for literally my entire life! I used to think that adding Clippy to Office was the dumbest thing that Microsoft had ever done, but I see now that I was wrong. HOW IS THIS NOT FIXED YET?!
