Is there a way to set the auto-correct function to always use the option for "autocorrecting the spelling "of a word in Outlook?
I often deliberately set some letter combinations so they autoatically get chaanged as a kind of shorthand. This often happens "on-the-fly" as I am writing an email. If i type GE for instance i want that to be corrected to say "General Electric" on any occasion where I type those two capital letters.
In other cases, i often make typos like "akways" and when that appears i would want it to be corrected to be "always" every time it happens. This kind of automatic correction was alwasy one of Outlook and Words Best Features.
Now that Microsot has added several other options such as "Read Aloud" and others, it forces an extra step to choose which option i want.

Like you see here. I would prefer it to always use "Add to AutoCorrect" in all cases of this type but I cannot find any way to set my options for this function. In Earlier versions of Outlook, this was an automatic thing. It allowed me to have aa very large selection of "automatically corrected" words. I can still do this but it takes the extra step of choosing "add to autocorrect" every time I do it to make it create that auto fix for purposely misspelled words.

How can I get Outlook spellcheck to perform automatically as it once did?
