  1. hy to everyone. for me step1 and step2 was the solution. finally, i can write correctly as i want, WITHOUT autocorrect

  2. Doesn’t work.
    Did you even test this before posting the.. ahem.. “article”?

  3. This does not affect the Windows Mail app at all. It keeps correcting the words. The setting proposed here only changes the behaviour of the rest of the OS.
