Copy and paste text or upload a document (.txt, .doc, .docx, .rtf) into the Grammarly online editor.
The desktop app installs a shortcut on your computer's desktop to provide quick and easy access to Grammarly. Its usage is identical to the online editor. The desktop app is available for both Windows and OS X.
The browser extensions allow Grammarly to check writing entered in text boxes within a web browser, including the Gmail Compose box.
You can also use the Grammarly Keyboard App for iOS and Android devices. Go to the App Store or the Google Play Store and download the free app. You may need to read the How to Install pages for your device's operating system to complete setup: How to Install on iOS ... How to Install on Android.
The Microsoft Office plug-in for Windows conveniently adds Grammarly to Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook. When creating a document, Grammarly will appear on the right-hand side and provide suggestions, as the online editor does.
We suggest that you DO NOT install the Word plug-in, but instead write your document in Microsoft Word and then upload it to the Grammarly online editor.
Grammarly suggests that if you want to install the Word plug-in, use Grammarly's "Undo" button, which appears after you accept a correction.
Grammarly suggests that if you want to install the Word plug-in, then disable the Grammarly plug-in before you begin typing any text in MS Word, and enable the Grammarly plug-in when you are done editing. This way you will proofread text and save it as a ready-to-use document.
Microsoft Word's "Undo" button and Ctrl+Z shortcut are disabled when Grammarly is turned on.
