If you are always disturbed by variety of AutoComplete suggestions, disabling AutoCorrect will certainly help you a lot.
With regard to AutoCorrect, I have ever appreciated it very much. Not only does it give me several editing suggestions during writing emails, but also it can help me to avert some spelling mistakes by reference to those suggestions. Since this feature is activated by default, I have never considered disabling it until I met a problem.
My Problems about AutoCorrect
I have a habit of writing. That is I am very fond of using “may”, a modal verb in my emails. Perhaps it is due to its gentle tone that I prefer it instead of other modal verbs like “can”. However, every time when I type “may”, a hint always pops up, which suggests me to press “Enter” to insert the “May 30, 2016”. But my typing “may” here doesn’t refer to “May” in calendar. Unfortunately I often press “Enter” by accident. In result, I need to delete the characters repeatedly. Since then, I’ve been vexed at this disturbing hint. I am in sore need of cancel this function. After a certain time, I finally seek out a method, namely disabling AutoCorrect.
Steps to Disable AutoCorrect
- To start with we should open Outlook and go to “File” menu.
- Then click “Options” item.
- In the new popup window of “Outlook Options”, we should select “Mail” option.
- Under “Mail” option, we can see “Compose Messages”. In addition, we should also locate the icon of “ABC” in black with a blue checkmark, behind which there is a button of “Spelling and AutoCorrect”. Click the button.
- After clicking the button, a new window of “Editor Options” will turn up. Next we should select “Advanced” option at the right.
- Later in “Editing options”, we should locate the final item “Show AutoComplete suggestions”. It is usually ticked by default. Thus we should untick it, namely cancel the checkmark.
- Finally click two “OK” to return to Outlook main page.
Once back to Outlook, we can have a try. I can promise that there won’t appear any hints.
Measures to Deal with Abrupt Outlook Crashes
No matter the older Outlook versions or the newer versions, they are all prone to all kinds of Outlook errors. With mounting errors taking place, Outlook crashes will occur unexpectedly. In that scenario, we are better off checking whether there are any archive files. If not, we can utilize Outlook built-in repair tool – Scanpst.exe. But sometimes it is ineffective enough to repair Outlook. Next we need the help of some powerful external tools like DataNumen Outlook Repair, which will help us to retrieve the files as much as possible in a breeze.
