Learn English – How to correct a sentence that Word thinks is a fragment I need to revise

grammaticalitysentence

I will be specific. I am trying to frame a sentence to include in a blog post. Instinctively it feels lame and wrong. Word keeps asking me to consider revising the fragment. As I am not a native English speaker, I realize I have to ask questions when I get stuck and practice writing better sentences, step by step. That is the idea behind writing this post.

Here is my sentence:

Type out the below code in your favorite code editor or simple old NotePad and save it in a convenient location on your hard drive.

What is a better way to write it, both from the point of view of grammar and user friendliness?

Best Answer

I would rather use following than below. You could add a comma to aid readability:

Type out the following code in your favorite code editor or simple old Notepad, and save it in a convenient location on your hard drive.

And as it happens this also seems to pacify Word.
