Question: How Do I Stop the Automatic Capitalization in PowerPoint?
One feature that I find extremely annoying in PowerPoint, and all the Microsoft Office products actually, is the default setting in the program to capitalize the first word in a line of text. This is one of the AutoCorrect
features. I can see the point perhaps in Microsoft Word, but not in PowerPoint. One of the main features of PowerPoint is creating slides containing bulleted text
, which are often not sentences, but simply jot notes. These points do not need to begin with a capital letter.

Luckily, it is quite an easy fix to change this setting in the AutoCorrect feature of PowerPoint.
- Choose Tools > AutoCorrect Options...
- Select the AutoCorrect tab if it is not currently selected.
- Remove the check mark from the option Capitalize first letter of sentences.
- Click the OK button.
That's it. From now on, any new line of text will not be "corrected" to begin with a capital letter.
