I want to change the language settings for correction in Microsoft Word 2007. When I change it or even set it as standard, it doesn't save it.

I'm about to have a nervous breakdown.

How do I set and keep the language settings for correction in Microsoft Word 2007?

You need to edit your normal.dotm file (which can be found at C:\Users\[username]\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates on Windows Vista)

yep - just open it with Word, make the changes from the Options panel, and save :) – warren Sep 18 '09 at 10:03
