When capitalizing and correcting misspelled words automatically, Microsoft Word’s AutoCorrect function is useful.
If you don’t want some errors to be made automatically, you can disable some or all of the autocorrect features.
AutoCorrect is often switched on by default in most programs.
To undo an AutoCorrect adjustment, press the keys Ctrl and Z.
Follow the steps to turn off autocorrect.
- Start up Microsoft Word.
- Click the File tab.
- In the lower-left corner, click Options.
- Click the Check option in the Word Options box.
- Select AutoCorrect Options from the menu.
You may turn off features like automatically capitalizing phrases that you don’t like in the AutoCorrect window, or you can turn off autocorrect completely.
The function is activated if the box is checked.
The feature is deactivated if the box is not ticked.
You may also remove terms you don’t want to be autocorrected or add new autocorrects for words you commonly misspell.
