You may not have a Word dictionary after you installed Office 2013. If not, here’s an easy way to get it…plus more stuff for Word.

1. In Word 2013, go to the “Insert” tab. In the middle of the ribbon at the top, click the “My Apps” button.

6. Choose “Trust” at the bottom and your dictionary will be added. You can see all the installed apps on the right. To get rid of the app box view click on the X in the upper right corner.  To see the apps you have installed, select the “Insert” tab and pull down the “My Apps” choice on the ribbon at the top.

7. You can select other apps to install into Word as you wish. However, if you install a lot of apps it may slow down any actions you perform in Word (saving, printing, editing, etc.) Be a minimalist! (Yup…I could use that philosophy when it comes to the junk in my house…*sigh*)
