In the upper-left corner of a Microsoft Word window, click “File.”

Next, select “Options” from the list of options in the left-hand pane.
It will then display the “Word Options” window. Go to the left pane and select “Proofing.
Click “Settings” after scrolling down to the “When correcting spelling and grammar in Word” section.
It will then display the “Grammar Settings” window. Many of these options are enabled by default, including the grammar checker in Word. You’ll see that many of the options toward the bottom are disabled, though. To check for things like passive voice, jargon, split infinitives, and even some more specific refinements, for instance, you can enable options in Word.

To enable any rules, select the checkbox next to them, and then, when finished, click “OK.

A blue squiggle appears when Word finds a grammar mistake. Right-clicking it will display suggestions.
