Word's right-click Shortcut menus can save you lots of time by instantly displaying often-used commands for a specific task. Still, many Shortcut menus lack the exact commands you may need. For example, if you right-click a word in a document, the Thesaurus command doesn't pop up. You can add it, however, by using a method that isn't very well documented.
1. Select Tools-Customize; then click the Toolbars tab in the Customize dialogue box.
2. In the Toolbars list, check the box beside Shortcut Menus to display the toolbar for Shortcut Menus.
3. Click the appropriate category within the Shortcut Menus toolbar to display a list of menus; then select the particular menu you want to modify.
4. In the Customize dialogue box, click the Commands tab. Select the appropriate item from the Categories list. For example, the Thesaurus command is in the Tools category, corresponding to its location in Word's menus. Click the command you want to add to the menu; then drag and drop it onto the displayed Shortcut menu. The new command will be on the displayed Shortcut menu when you release the mouse button. Click Close.
Note: you can remove any command from the Shortcut menu by dragging it off the menu and dropping it anywhere in the document window during this process.
