Microsoft Office Questions and Answers - How to Turn Off Automatic Capitalization in Word
Nick writes in with an Office question Question:When typing on Microsoft Word, each time I start a new line my computer automatically caps the first word. It's very annoying to have to go back and fix it. Example: Mary had a little Lamb, its fleece was White as snow........ Is there a fix - thx.
Answer: You can go into the Word autocorrect options and turn off capitalization. If you use Word 2003 or older go to the Tools menu and then choose AutoCorrect Options. Then go to the AutoCorrect tab and uncheck Capitalize first letter of sentences. If you use Word 2007 click the Office button, then go to Word Options, then Proofing and click the Autocorrect Options button.
