wrong autocorrect

Post by weitsicht » Fri Jul 19, 2019 12:13 pm

Hi, I probably misuse this Forum a Little but I Need some advice:
My autocorrect does some quite Randomized capital letters (at the beginning of words) that to my understanding is not in line with Correct English spelling. :shrug:
Can someone please tell me where I can Uncheck a box for this?
I'am using Windows 10 and Edge.
Thanks and Sorry, W

Maybe you can fix the language somewhere?
On my Ipad I can choose the language (English, German or French) on the keypad and it helps with spelling.

I don'r know anything about windows 10. But if you search at certain forums you should get an answer quickly how to adjust that autocorrect programme. Usualy I "google" (literally ecosia) for it and get answers from those special forums when people had the same question months or years ago.

Ayu is right but I would add that the problem is almost certainly a setting in Edge (i.e. not Windows and not this forum's software).
If you can't find a setting in a Preferences dialog (probably called something like "capitalisation rules") and you get really annoyed by it :techproblem: perhaps you could switch to Firefox or Chrome?

Well, These Forums say that it's non-adaptable unter Windows 10.
Firefox doesn't work stable with my Cookie restriction preferences - I guess theres one mal to choose in-between.

These whole Systems don't really get better, least to say 'slimmer' (good News though: we get G5 to support These immense data volumes)
Who is Aware that all this Generation and Transfer Costs Energy ?!?!

Thanks for your help, guys, I guess I have to love with this wrong autocorrect for the time being.

I use Firefox (on Mac) with an extension called Privacy Badger which seems to work quite well at controlling cookies. Take a look at it - it might be a good solution for you.
