Autocorrect was created with the goal of helping you catch typos or other spelling errors that you make when typing on your smartphone, to help you catch them before you embarrass yourself. But Autocorrect can sometimes be its own brand of headache, like when it autocorrects something that was not actually spelled wrong to begin with. This issue continues with the Samsung Galaxy J7, as Autocorrect can sometimes try to be so helpful that it becomes a nuisance.
For those who don’t want to use Autocorrect, there is a way to disable Autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone. You can either disable Autocorrect completely, or just when typing words that Autocorrect may not recognize. The following is a guide on how to turn Autocorrect on or off on a Samsung Galaxy J7.
How to turn autocorrect on and off on Samsung Galaxy J7:
- Turn on the Galaxy J7.
- Go to a screen that shows the keyboard.
- Near the left space bar, select and hold the Dictation Key.
- Then select on the Settings option, which is the one that looks like a gear.
- Below the section that says Smart Typing, select Predictive Text and disable it
- Another option is to disable different settings like auto-capitalization and punctuation marks.
Later, if you decide you want to turn Autocorrect back on using your Galaxy J7, all you need to do is go back to the keyboard and go to settings and change the Autocorrect feature to “ON” to make things go back to normal.
It’s important to note that for those that have an alternative keyboard installed through Google Play, the method to turn autocorrect on and off on the Samsung Galaxy J7 may be a little different, based on how the keyboard is laid out.
