Written By FarhanMax

As a writer of any document, you often need to use lower case letters in your article or document. However, auto-capitalization of the writing applications such as MS Word and Google Docs make those letters upper cased. This is such an awful experience when you need to re-write those letters or words again to keep them lower-cased.

What does Auto Capitalization do?

Auto capitalization is a feature of the word processor to make the first letter of a sentence Upper-case. It is an automated feature built inside most word processing applications. Some of these features will correct the mistakes that are commonly made, like improper capitalization, the lower case at the starting of a sentence, etc.

Auto capitalization makes your writing experience smoother. When you write a document using any writing tools, you must have noticed the auto capitalization of the first letter of a sentence. If you write any lower case letter at the starting of a sentence, the word processor will automatically change it to the upper case.

It is a pretty handy feature. However, for some work scenarios, auto capitalization may become painful. For me, often, I need to use “i” instead of “I”. But the word processor makes it upper case every time I write “i”. I need to press backspace every time and re-write again.

I am about to show you some quick guides to enable or disable auto capitalization in seconds easily.
