    So, I was typing and I accidentally pressed "+thr" (was supposed to be "the"). Is there a way to delete words from the dictionary, or whatever it's referred to as?

    You would have to delete the entire custom dictionary. It'd be nice if they could implement it like they do on Word though, a custom dictionary you have full access to.

    Hmm, that sucks. Well, I haven't really added anything to my custom dictionary that I wanted to, so deleting it wouldn't be a big deal. How would I do that?

    Wish you had a list, and that you had the option to delete one.

    I added few dozen words on custom dictionary. I use the words so often that they now work as word flow (or whatever its called). You know, you type one word the rest appear one by one.. Love it. I too added few mistyped words by accident and now even if I Type the word correctly the one from dictionary replaces it. So I have to erase that and retype. Frustrating.

    If I clean whole dictionary, I might lose the word flow. So, waiting for MS to allow us edit dictionary

    Perhaps some industrious developer will see this thread and create an app that will allow us to add/remove individual words to the user dictionary. That would be awesome.

    There was a dev looking for ideas in the forums and I suggested exactly the same. Need a dictionary editor.
