Hi, my name's Cathy. And I'm going to show you how to correct your words in a sentence in Microsoft Word. If you're accidentally typing over your words while you're trying to make a correction in a sentence. I'm going to show you how to avoid that and properly correct your words with no problem. If you go to Word, you'll see that I have a sentence here. It says, I can see Spot run. Over the hills and far away, run, Spot, run. But I wanted to say, over the hills and in a land far away. And in a land, and all of a sudden, I'm deleting all sorts of words. I'm in over-type mode. I want to get out of over-type mode. And in order to do that, I'm going to go up to the Word menu, go into Preferences. Click on the Edit menu at the top. And I'm going to go down to right about here, where it says, Overtype Mode and I'm going to un-check Overtype Mode. I'm going to go down and click O.K. Now, I can go back to my sentence and I can write, I can see Spot run. Over the hills and in a land far away, run, Spot, run. And my sentence is now complete. And that's how you make a correction in Microsoft Word in your sentences without over-typing. Thanks for watching, I'm Cathy and good luck.
