mvalencia2003,

You may be able to add items to the font menu that appears above a highlighted word or sentence by modifying the Windows registry. I virtually never modify the registry, so can't give you advice on how to do that.

However, if you simply click the right mouse button, the right-click menu will appear in addition to the font menu. This context-sensitive menu will give you additional options depending on where the text is located. For example, if the selected text includes a spelling or grammatical error, you may get the context menu to fix the error before you can get to the standard right-click menu. If the text is in a table, you will get the context menu for a table cell.

You can modify the pop-up menu in Word by way of some VBA code and a Macro which will effective bind the functionality to your default Word template. It's not quite as difficult as it sounds.
