Right-click autocorrect option disappeared in Word 2013 - How to fix it

The Official Microsoft answer is that this feature was removed in order to have less clutter (!):

To make Word 2013 cleaner and less cluttered, we removed AutoCorrect and certain formatting tools from the spelling error context menu. The features are still available in Word 2013 through other entry points within the Word user interface.
To change AutoCorrect options, do the following:
Choose File → Options → Proofing
Choose the AutoCorrect Options button.

Now is this stupid or not? There are two ways to remedy this situation. The first is to paste the attached macro (once you unzip it first) in the following directory:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP

The other one:

Put an icon for Autocorrect through Customize Quick Access Toolbar and so when a word gets underlined just highlight it, click the icon, and the word appears in Autocorrect Replace and then you can type the correct spelling.

Looks like it has been re-added in Word 365 (perhaps in some earlier version too).
