How To Turn Off Auto Caps On Google Docs

Programs like Google Docs enable you to conceal any errors you make while typing because it might be challenging to repair typos when you are done typing.

The very first letter of the first word in your sentences is naturally capitalized in Google Docs thanks to a mechanism. It’s one of numerous writing-simplifying tools that Google provides. You can disable the automatic capitalization option if you don’t think it’s useful.

This means that you may disable auto-capitalization on Google Slides as well as on Mac and Windows. Nevertheless, you may disable this function in any version of Docs, even if you’re using the most recent version or a previous one, a web browser, or a mobile device.
