How to Disable Autocorrect in IE11

  • Regardless of autocorrect settings in Windows 8.1, some words like "Company", "Desktop", etc. get capitalized automatically.
  • This is more of an issue for users that use more than one language to communicate, such as German OS and writing in English.

Note: This issue has been fixed during the Dezember 2013 patchday.

To manually fix this:

  1. Open the Start page.
  2. Type "regedit" and run it when it appears.
  3. Go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\TabletTip\1.7
  4. Click on Edit -> New -> DWORD (32-bit) Value
  5. Name the new value EnableAutocorrection and set it to 0.
  6. Restart IE.
