I use MS Office Proofing Tools. On the other hand, I have to install a fresh Windows. Obviously after Windows installation, the words added in old OS will disappear. So, I am seeking a trick to save these words and add them to the Fresh Windows.

Can I find them some where?

In Word 2010, when you add a word to the dictionary, it appears in a text file here:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC

You can copy this file over to your new installation.

The user name might not match the actual folder name, and Windows could be installed in a different drive. You can use %AppData%\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC instead. –  and31415 Mar 30 at 17:15
