Find your word, right click, up arrow to Thesaurus, and hit enter.
Then, arrow to the preferred synonym and press ENTER.

This is from the Dewitt and Associates training materials. Unfortunately, Dewitt is no longer in business.

1. Press SHIFT + F7 to open the Research Pane with focus on the Thesaurus. Press F6 to move to the Research Pane, located at the right edge of the screen.
2. Explore the Research Pane using TAB. At the top of the pane, the combo box will indicate that the current search is being done in the Thesaurus.
3. TAB past the Search For Combo Boxes to the list box with the heading "Thesaurus English" (not the previous combo box that contains Thesaurus). This is a list of possible replacements for the selected word. If the word to be replaced has many possible meanings, Word 2010 will group the synonyms by word type (nouns, verbs, etc.).
4. Navigate the Thesaurus List Box with TAB. Upon hearing a suitable replacement, press SHIFT + F10 to open the Context Menu.
5. Use the DOWN ARROW Key to locate the Insert Option and press ENTER. The replacement word will be substituted in place of the original word. The Research Pane will remain open until manually closed or the session is ended.

I have tried all the instructions given by you and another list member
concerning the MS Word thesaurus. My computer doesn't give a full window
description when looking for the thesaurus because it has the upper and
lower ribbons. All other commands for the program turned into a royal mess.
Does anyone have any other ideas on how to use this obviously necessary
tool? Judith

Judith,
If you want synonyms, the easiest way to find them is to place the MS Word cursor on the word of interest and either press the Application Key or Shift F10. In the resulting context menu,Down-Arrow to the Synonyms submenu and press Right-Arrow. Down-Arrow through the various synonyms and press Enter to replace the original word with your selected synonym. The Thesaurus is also on this submenu if you want to play around in there for some reason.
