Hi Expert
I try to simpfy Word in Office 2013, which has so many features, for example, after i type some special words, it can give many red underline etc. I like The Word is as simple as Notepad, but the Notepad has too little features. Thank you

EESky,

Have you looked at the Proofing options?  The red underline is the spell checker.

FileOptionsProofing

You can change the settings here for spelling/grammar.  You can begin by unchecking the options to "Check spelling as you type" and "Mark grammar errors as you type" as shown below:

Also, if you reuse these special words in multiple documents, right-click the word and you will see an option to Add to dictionary. Once the word is added, it will no longer be red-lined an any documents.

You could give Wordpad a try. That could be considered intermediate between Notepad and Word (as the name implies). You should find it, like Notepad, under 'Accessories'

Thank you for your fast reply. i like ThinkSpaceSolutions comment, but that change would change all Word files. Can i change a special Word file, and leave other Word files are original configuration ? also i hope to change background colour White to other colour, the word is white

For any document (at least in Word 2007), you can select it all (Ctrl+A) and choose 'Set Language' from the Review tab. Tick the 'Do not check spelling or grammar' box. This is a document-wide setting.

Note. Actually it only applies to the Selection, but Ctrl+A ensures that that means the whole document
