Windows 7: A list of default Autocorrect Options in Word 2010

A list of default Autocorrect Options in Word 2010

In MS Word 2010, under proofing>autocorrect options>autocorrect, Math Autocorrect, etc.
The default replacements are listed. They are things like, (c) is replaced by the copyright symbol etc. In Math Autocorrect for instance if you type in \downarrow, Word replaces that with a down arrow.
Dos anyone know where I can find those default replacements listed anywhere? It is difficult to keep scrolling in the little window that MS Office shows you.
Thanks for any help

OEM Windows 7 Ult (x64) SP1


According to this (old) article at MS site, the data (entries and settings) were stored in the Windows Registry, at least for older versions of MS Word:
I have no idea if that's still the case with MS Word 2010.

This more recent article says, "There is no intrinsic command in Word to all the AutoCorrect entries like you can print AutoText entries." But you can create a macro to print the entries, as explained here: Printing a List of AutoCorrect Entries

Hope this helps,
