LanguageTool for Windows offers advanced error detection and style improvements for your writing, which might overlap with the corrections from Window's native spellchecker. This guide will show you how to disable the native spellchecker in Microsoft Word, allowing you to concentrate solely on the suggestions from LanguageTool.

Steps to Disable Microsoft Word's Native Spellchecker:

  1. Open Microsoft Word and go to “File” → “Options”
  2. Click on the “Proofreading” tab
  3. Ensure that all checkboxes under this section are unchecked
  4. Confirm and apply your changes by clicking “OK”

With these steps, Microsoft Word will no longer display its native spelling and grammar suggestions, allowing you to focus on LanguageTool's advanced grammar and style recommendations in your document.
