Example of Microsoft Word displaying AutoText of Thank you when typing Thank y

AutoText is a feature in Microsoft Word that completes text you are typing. For example, if you began typing Thank y, Microsoft Word would show a small window above that text displaying the AutoText Thank you, as shown in the picture. You could then press Tab or F3 to complete the text.

Although the Microsoft Word AutoText feature has many predefined words, users may enter words specific to their needs. For example, you could add Computer Hope, and as you began typing Comp, you could complete the remainder of the phrase by pressing Tab.
