Enable or Disable Autocorrect Options In Word Of Microsoft Office 2010 (Word 2010) And Info

This article simply helps you locate where the Autocorrect option settings are for Word 2010 or Microsoft Office 2010, and lists the option settings.  It took more than one hour to make this article.

 

  • Accessing the Autocorect Options:
    From the Word menu, select File tab, then Options, then Proofing, and then click the AutoCorrect Options button.

  • A window will show (the Autocorrect window), and the Autocorrect tab will be selected already.  Enable by checking or disable by removing a check mark from the appropriate checkbox.  You can enable or disable "Show AutoCorrect Options buttons", "Correct TWo INitial CApitals", "Capitalize first letter of sentences", "Capitalize first letter of table cells", "Capitalize names of days", "Correct accidental usage of cAPS LOCK key", and "Replace text as you type".  More on these checkbox options below.

  • A final option is to add text that you want replaced with another text or phrase.  For example, lets say you want to Replace "WHW1" with the company's full name of "Web Hosting With $1".  Or maybe you want all mentions of "Web Hosting With $1" to be replaced with "WHW1.com".
    1. In the "Replace" field type the content to locate for replacement.
    2. In the "With" field type the new phrase or word or acronym, or whatever you want to be shown instead.

 

Meaning of the Autocorrect options

Show AutoCorrect Options buttons:
When you hold your mouse cursor over the corrected word you’ll see the AutoCorrect Options button show.

Correct TWo INitial CApitals:
This replaces two consecutive capital letters in a word with just the first letter being made capital. For example, TWo would become Two, INitial wold become Initial.

Capitalize first letter of sentences:
It simply makes the first letter of the first word in a sentence be a capital letter.

Capitalize first letter of table cells:
Makes the first letter of the first word in a sentence be a capital letter in a Cell of a Table. Also, when you push tab to go to the next cell, or press the space-bar, the capitalization is applied on the first letter of the first word in that cell.

Capitalize names of days:
Microsoft Word knows the names of the days, and this option causes it to Capitalize the first letter of those names.
Correct accidental usage of cAPS LOCK key: Causes programmed intelligence to determine when you accidentally left the Caps Lock button on and corrects the text you type.

Replace text as you type:
This is useful for helping you not type the whole word, as it lists and/or replaces the replacement word/phrase.  If you got many long phrases and/or acronyms that you regularly type, this can be a big time saver.
