Windows 7: Where is User Dictionary - Office 2010-Word & Outlook?

Where is User Dictionary - Office 2010-Word & Outlook?

Hello there,

I have been trying to collect all of my back-up necessary files into my "My Documents" folder, so I don't have to maintain a list or archive of all the different locations of them. I can just backup or copy the Documents folder regularly and as needed.

I would like to know where the user dictionary is for Office 2010 - Word & Outlook, the one that is created when you click "Add to Dictionary" in Spell Check? Then I want to know if I can direct Office 2010 to put it in the My Documents folder?

Thanks to you for any help you can give me. Best regards,

~Antonio

Hi antonio.

Go to the Backstage (the tab to the left of the home tab, normally marked file), and select options then proofing - under custom dictionaries you will see your user dictionaries listed

You can copy and paste these to wherever you wish and then point this dialogue to the new location. this will still work as before but with the dictionaries in a safe location

One more thing

Hey there, Thanks for the quick reply!!!

I thought of this after I posted my initial request. What about the Google Spell Check Dictionary? Could that be first of all moved to the My Documents folder, and secondly, could the Google and Office Dictionaries be combined, so that words added to one will be marked correctly in the other app? Hopefully (probably not, but hopefully), they are just text files and merging them and renaming the file location is possible. Please advise! Thanks again!

Not really a great Google user but is this the Chrome browser spellcheck you are looking for?

I doubt that they will be of the same format even if they are both text files - may be best if you post a separate question in the browsers & Mail section, and one of the Google Gurus may have some ideas

Thanks, it is actually the Google Toolbar spell checker. That is good advice, I will check in with the Google gurus tomorrow.

G'night and thank you for your prompt reply.
