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?

You're in luck! You came to the right place. Wink

There are buttons that you can add to the Quick Access Toolbar to turn both Spellcheck and Grammar Check On / Off.

Here's how:

Hide or Show Spellcheck & Grammar Squiggly Lines in MS Word (All MS Office apps)
Right-click the "Quick Access Toolbar" area, and click on "Customize Quick Access Toolbar"

 
 

Toggle the Spellcheck & Grammar Squiggly Lines in MS Word (All MS Office apps)
Under "Choose commands from" select "Commands Not in the Ribbon".
Scroll down the list until you see the items "Hide Grammar Errors" and "Hide Spelling Errors".
Add them to the list to the right.

 
 

Now whenever you want to temporarily hide either one you just click the one (or both) that you want, and it'll hide it. Click it again, and it'll show them again. Cool



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
