How To Add Grammarly To Word | Get The Word Plugin

Microsoft Word is often used worldwide to report documents. In colleges, schools, and offices, we can see that MS Office is essential. For writing a cover letter, essay, or any document, we prefer Word to save our work.

MS Office has a built-in spell checker which is useful to correct mistakes. It highlights the sentence in Green and Red for spelling and grammar mistakes. Even after double-checking for the spelling error, your document may still have some grammar issues.
