Microsoft Word (and Outlook) in Windows 10 gets a new fashion grammar checker, known as Microsoft Editor, that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to better detect grammar and typing errors.
Although the Windows 10 version of Word already checks your grammar and points out mistakes, the new tool goes even further, using AI to check your writing and make advanced suggestions based on clarity, formality, inclusiveness, and more. It will also highlight sensitive geopolitical references, and overall, it could significantly improve your writing.
Microsoft Editor has been part of the web version of Word for some time, but is finally coming to the desktop version of Windows 10, although it will initially be introduced to people using Insider, giving them early access to new features to help you test them.
Using the editor
As Windows Latest explains, the new Microsoft Editor will highlight errors as usual, but you can also select a word and then press Shift + F10 or Alt + Down, which will display a new menu with word suggestions, including synonyms and meanings.
There is also a plagiarism check that will ensure that your work is properly cited and not too similar to published works.
If you signed up for Insider, be sure to run Version 2010 (Build 13328.20000) to try Microsoft Editor in Word.
We hope that the new feature will be introduced to regular users soon.
