HELP!!!! The AUTO-CORRECT typing function has taken over my computer. It's like HAL the computer from the film "2001 a Space Odyssey".

How do I turn it off.? I can live with a few of my own typing errors but the AUTO-CORRECT actually generates more work than it is worth, at least for me.
Thanks, stevet

Depends on whether it is OS related, or specific for a piece of software.

For win10 the settings are easy to change...

Very Happy

As for all such issues, the internet is overflowing with "How To" descriptions.

For OSX, see the following...

Thanks Georg. I did search the internet prior to posting this question on The Forum and had no luck. Thanks for the information which I will definitely use to silence the AUTO-CORRECT Function. Stevet
