How to check grammar in Microsoft Word
#1
I figured I'd post this to help writers with their grammar. 

First, open a document or, you can use CTRL + O

All right, now that you have your document open, click on FILE...

Now that you have it open, SCROLL DOWN until you see OPTIONS...

Got it so far? It should like this:

Now click on PROOFING...

Under Writing Style, have Grammar & Refinements checked. Now click on Settings...

Check whichever ones you want, but I recommend checking all under Grammar, Clarity and Conciseness, Inclusive Language, Vocabulary Choice.

That's it! That's all I have to say about this! 

Good luck, writers!

What if all you have is Open Office because M$ Word is too expensive? Could Open Office be used as well?

I don’t know anything about that program.

The much simpler way to check for grammar is pressing F7.

Also @ Han, OpenOffice doesn't have that feature, but its successor does though.

If you mean Word, then that just defeats the purpose of this topic... :(

Yes I did. Besides, no offence who's going to navigate their way through just to check their spelling and grammar? I don't even do it that way, and never did. I've always used F7 to make sure everything I write makes sense.
