Make Microsoft Word less annoying

by Volker Weber

Good explanation on Lifehacker:

Microsoft Word can drive you nuts. It piles on features few people need, plagues you with annoying auto-corrections and just generally acts like a pain in the ass.

No more. It's time to take back the word processor, to put Word in its place and make it your ally instead of your adversary. Follow these tips and you'll be a much happier writer.

Lots of useful tips, including how to ditch Word altogether.

Now it does. Thanks.

That is an excellent link! KISS in action?

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm forced to use Word for a project I'm working on. I had already found out how to disable most of the features (auto correct is a beast!) but the auto word selection was driving me crazy. This tip alone will save me a lot of frustration.
