Outlook gives us some Proofing tools as well. Up here, in the Ribbon, in the Proofing group, we have an ABC button, and this is the Spelling and Grammar checker. Of course, you can access this with the familiar shortcut key of F7, which you're used to it if you've been using Microsoft Office. Just going to click on the button here, and it's going to run the spellchecker. Notice, it's an option to Check grammar, I'm going to turn that on. In the meantime it's found me a misspelled word here and I can Ignore it Once, Ignore it always in this message, or Add it to the Dictionary.
I can also select us one of suggestions and Change it, or Change All the occurrences, or AutoCorrect. If you choose AutoCorrect, in the future as you type, it will fix that word for you. So when I type S-P-E-L-L-E, it would automatically change that around two spelled. So you might want to do that, if it's a common typing error. I'm going to click Change. Found another one, grammar needs an "A", so we'll change that one. And it's found a sentence fragment here. Cannot write very well. And it needs to do something with that, so I'm going to do "I cannot write very well.", and of course I'll need to change that.
And notice you can Undo your Edit here, Ignore the Rule if you want, go to the Next Sentence. You can make the Change, which is probably what I'm going to do. Or you can click Explain, so if you want to figure out what's a sentence fragment, go ahead and click Explain, it will give you some more details there. I'm going to click Change. And spelling and grammar check is complete. In addition to a spelling and grammar checker, if you hit the down arrow here, you'll see there's some other Proofing tools available, such as a Research tool, a Thesaurus, some Translation services, and so on.
