Does AutoCorrect correct every word I type?

  • AutoCorrect

Global AutoCorrect automatically corrects many of your spelling mistakes in the background so you can focus on your work and spend less time spell-checking. Sometimes, however, homophones or ambiguous words leave Global AutoCorrect uncertain. If that’s the case, it won’t just guess.

If the word is too close to another word for Global AutoCorrect to decide, you will have the option to check which words Global AutoCorrect is thinking of and then select the option. This happens by pressing the F2 in a Windows computer and shift+command+A in a macOS computer. Once you have told Global AutoCorrect what the correct word is, next time it knows to correct it for you.
