So a friend of mine thought it would be hilarious to had hundreds of random words to the dictionary on Office, particularly the words which I tend to make typos with. Now generally when I make a typo Word doesnt pick it up.

Is there anyway I can remove these typoed words off the dictionary?

I have MS Word 2003, not sure if it's the same with whatever version you have but I can go to Tools->Options->Spelling & Grammar->Custom Dictionaries. There I can modify or delete the custom dictionary that words I added are stored in.

Thank you so much! I had to finish my assignment in the library, but I was able to get rid of the words my friend added.
