Find and Replace is a helpful tool in Microsoft Word that searches your document for a specific word or phrase. 

You can use the tool to replace one word with another, which can be helpful in situations where you need to go back to change the spelling of a word or check a document for instances of a repeated word to avoid redundancy. For example, if you’re deep into writing a paper and realize you’ve been misspelling someone’s name (let’s say Mark when it should have been Marc), you can use Find and Replace to easily find all instances of Mark and replace it with Marc with a few clicks.

Below, we’ve outlined how to use Find and Replace in Word on macOS and Windows.
