Question from Craig L.: I just bought a new Windows 10 tablet and there’s something that’s driving me nuts.
Every time I start typing something on the onscreen keyboard it automatically capitalizes the first letter and I have to go back and change it.
That really irritates me because most of the stuff I type doesn’t need any capitalization at all.
Is there a way to make this tablet quit capitalizing the first letter when I start typing?
Rick’s answer: I know exactly what you’re talking about Craig, and I find it irritating as well. First Letter Capitalization is fine for texting and stuff like that, but there are times when it’s a real pain.
Luckily, it’s really easy to turn auto-capitalization off. Just follow these steps:
1 – Tap the Start button.
2 – Tap the Settings icon (it looks like a “gear” or “cog”).
3 – Tap the Typing link over in the left-hand column.
4 – Scroll down to the “Touch Keyboard” section and toggle the “Capitalize the first letter of each sentence” setting to Off.
That’s all there is to it, Craig. Good luck!
Bonus tip: If you’re new to Windows 10 you might want to pick up a copy of Windows 10 for Dummies. This is a great book for learning how to do most anything with Windows 10.
Update from Craig: You rock, Rick! Worked perfectly. Thanks!
