Disabling Spelling and Grammar check in MS Word with AutoHotkey

Microsoft WordI’ve been shoving AutoHotkey code into MS Word a lot lately and got tired of going through all the steps to disable the spell check and grammar checker each time. I tried looking for a button inside MS Word to add to my toolbar but I couldn’t find a button to apply the settings (or to get me to the Proofing page) so I decided to write it in AutoHotkey. Here’s the video explaining how I got the code and the hiccups I had along the way.

VLookup in ExcelIn this video I demonstrate a new function I added to my AHK Excel Library. VLookups are really cool! In the below video I demonstrate how to use the function.
