  • Next, you'll simply need to enter a word into the 'type a word box' and press 'Enter'
  • Depending on what you input, you'll then be shown that word alongside a number and a colour
    • These both relate to how close the word you've guessed is to the answer in context, with number one being the correct answer overall, and a green highlight meaning you're on the right track
  • You'll then just proceed to keep entering words as you attempt to get closer and closer to the correct answer for today
  • For example, if the answer for today would be 'Lawn', you would get a higher result from something like 'flower', 'green', or 'garden', pointing you closer and closer towards the right answer

And that's it! By following these steps, you'll be a Contexto pro in no time - and if you're struggling on any particular day, we'll be here with all of the tips and answers you'll need.
