Custom Dictionary Word 2010 Location

Looking for Microsoft Word 2010’s custom dictionary location? By default, the custom dictionary location in Word 2010 is:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC

This is for Windows 7, but of course, the custom dictionary location will be slightly different for older operating systems, for example, in Windows XP is C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\UProof\CUSTOM.DIC.

If you can’t find your custom dictionary in this location, it may be set somewhere else. To find the correct location:

  1. Start Microsoft Word 2010
  2. Click File
  3. Click Options
  4. Select the Proofing tab
  5. Click the Custom Dictionaries… button
  6. The custom dictionary location will be in the File path section and the name of the custom dictionary file will be in the Dictionary List
