We all make mistakes while typing, especially when typing fast. While auto-correction on Mac is a handy tool, it is not completely reliable. It sometimes changes or guesses wrong words as corrections. This can end up in more editorial work than if auto-correct weren’t running. If you have had it with auto-correct, follow this guide to turn it off quickly.
How to disable auto-correction on your Mac
- Open System Preferences on your Mac.
- Click Keyboard.
- Now select Text.
- Uncheck Correct Spelling Automatically.
Now, no app will autocorrect misspelled words itself. In apps like Pages, Notes, TextEdit, etc., the misspelled words will be underlined, and you’ll be able to proofread quickly.
I hope this helped you disable autocorrect on your Mac. If you have any more queries, drop a comment, and I’ll get back to you.
