is translated into an arrow, and even 🙂 becomes a happy face. Beyond spelling, AutoCorrect fixes certain common punctuation. It automatically capitalizes the first letter of a sentence. AutoCorrect capitalizes I when you forget to, properly capitalizes the names of days, fixes the iNVERSE cAPS lOCK pROBLEM, plus other common typos. How to undo an AutoCorrect correction You can reverse AutoCorrect instant changes, but only when you’re quick. The secret is to press Ctrl+Z (the Undo command) immediately after AutoCorrect makes its correction. The change is gone. When AutoCorrect fixes a word, a blue rectangle appears under the first letter. That’s your key to access AutoCorrect options and change the way AutoCorrect behaves: Point the mouse at the rectangle to see a button, which you can then click to see various AutoCorrect options. Here are your options: Change Back to “whatever”: Undo the AutoCorrection. Stop Automatically Correcting “whatever”: Remove the word from the AutoCorrect dictionary so that it’s not corrected automatically again. (But it may still be flagged as incorrect by the spell checker.) Control AutoCorrect Options: Display the AutoCorrect dialog box, which is used to customize various AutoCorrect settings and to edit or create new entries in the AutoCorrect library.]]>
