How to Temporarily Hide Those Annoying Red and Green Squiggly Lines in MSWord (Microsoft Word)?

Does anyone know how to temporarily hide those SpellCheck (red) and Grammar Check (green) squiggly underlines in Microsoft Word? I like them to be there most of the time, but sometimes they just annoy me and I want them off for a short time. It's too much of a pain in the a$$ to go all the way into the settings and tick the options to turn those off and then go back in and tick them back on, just for temporary toggling. It'd be great if there was a button or keyboard shortcut to toggle them on and off, but I can't find anything to do that?

Center Text Across Selected Cells Without Merging Cells in MS Excel

For those of us who use MS Excel there are a lot of times you may want to have report headings centered across the top of the page. The only way you used to be able to do this was to use the Merge and Center option. Although Merge and Center serves its purpose, it can cause other problems down the road, such as selecting ranges or copy and pasting ranges.
