How to deactivate certain suggestions in Grammarly for Microsoft Office

Important: Grammarly for Microsoft Office will no longer be updated. We suggest switching to Grammarly for Windows (if you use Windows 10 or newer) or Grammarly for Mac (if you use macOS 10.14 or newer), which supports integration with multiple applications and websites, including Microsoft Office apps. Alternatively, we encourage you to give the Grammarly Editor a try.

If you prefer to use Grammarly for Microsoft Office, the option to deactivate a limited number of suggestions is available only with Grammarly Premium, Grammarly for Business, and Grammarly for Education.

When you see a suggestion that’s not helpful, hover over the trash bin icon in the upper right corner. If it’s a suggestion that can be turned off, you'll see an option that says Turn off suggestions like this. Click it to deactivate the suggestion: 


After you deactivate a suggestion, you can turn it back on by clicking Deactivated Suggestions in the Grammarly tab:


You can view and manage suggestions at  

Note: If you deactivate a certain type of suggestion in Grammarly for Microsoft Office, it will also be deactivated in other Grammarly product offerings.
