Ask Max: Using Microsoft Word's AutoCorrect Feature
I'm not sure if you know anything about Microsoft Word on Macs, but I did something on it, now I don't know how to undo it. I was trying to make a table, and it kept capitalizing that I wanted in lowercase, so I clicked on the little blue thing under the letter, and pressed "stop automatically capitalizing letters" and now I can't get it to capitalize them. And I realized, after I already clicked (so it won't let me access the blue thing anymore) that I could have said "automatically capitalize letters," so I don't know what to do.
I am writing to you now using MS Word (I paste into email later) and I have used Word for years. Like many Word users I have become increasingly dissatisfied by how Microsoft hides features and options in a maze of menus. The feature you turned off is called "AutoCorrect." It's controlled through an "AutoCorrect..." selection under the "Tools" menu. In the AutoCorrect window click on the "AutoCorrect" tab. Check the checkbox next to the line that reads "Capitalize first letter of sentence." Click the OK button at the bottom of the window and then restart Word for good measure. It should now capitalize your first words again.
Glad to help with any problem, even Microsoft ones.
