Chromebook Turn Off Autocorrect

The Autocorrect feature is definitely one of the most useful features on any device. If you are using your Chromebook for work, you will surely rely on this feature to write anything. If you are making a presentation or you need to get those documents ready before the end of the day, you need to make sure they are error-free.


That’s why many people use autocorrect daily. But, there are times when this feature becomes annoying. Maybe you wanted to type something in chat, but autocorrect changed it to something completely different.

If you are texting someone, autocorrect is not that useful. It completely changes all your phrases and words. This can result in a huge misunderstanding. But, don’t worry. You can easily turn it off. If you want to know how to disable it on your Chromebook, you’ve come to the right place. 

We will show you all that you need to know to disable this feature in no-time. Just follow these simple steps and you will be ready in seconds. Here is what you should do. 

Step 1

Turn on your Chromebook. To access the “Settings” menu, go to the bottom-right corner of the screen. Here, you can see a small image – the image you uploaded. Click on it. Now, click on the cog icon. 

 In this particular example, the cog icon is right next to the question mark icon. On your Chromebook, it may be in a different location. It depends. This is the button for the “Settings” menu. Open it. 

Step 2

Go to “Show Advanced Settings”. 

Step 3

Look for “Languages”. It is in the “Language input setting menu”. Next to the language, you have chosen is the “Configure” button. Click on it. 

Step 4

To disable autocorrect, simply toggle off the “Auto-correction” option from the drop-down menu right next to it. Select “Off”. In the “Auto-Correction” tab, you have two choices. You can select either “Modest” or “Aggressive” auto-correction. Whatever you decide to select is up to you. 

If you don’t want your Chromebook to capitalize letters automatically, disable that feature. Click on the active checkmark to disable it. The same goes for the period option right under it. The changes you have made will directly be saved to your Chromebook. No need to restart it. 

That’s about it! Now you know how to disable autocorrect on your Chromebook. To test it out, open a document. You should try it out on a word document. Type intentional mistakes and see if the autocorrect option is off. 


Autocorrect is a handy feature. But, it can also be annoying. If you want to disable it, just follow these steps. You will turn it off in seconds. And the best thing about it is that you don’t need to restart the device to apply these changes. Everything will be saved to your Chromebook.
