Share or transfer autocorrect (acl) files

Technet entry


To use your AutoCorrect entries on another computer (or to share them with another user profile on your computer), locate the .acl files in the %AppData%\Microsoft\Office folder. (You can type the path in Windows Explorer exactly as shown here and the %AppData% environment variable will automatically expand to the full path. In Windows 7, that path is C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office by default, but it might be different on your computer.)

Copy the two .acl files to the comparable folder on another computer or in another user’s profile.
