The Autocorrect is a well-intentioned feature of the Samsung Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1 keyboard that, unfortunately, doesn’t always work as planned. If you don’t like the way it detects spelling errors or typos, if you notice it makes some inappropriate suggestions, or if you just don’t want to use it, you shouldn’t keep it active.
This article will teach you how to access this particular menu within seconds. While you’re on your way of disabling the Autocorrect, you might as well spot some other more or less annoying features that you can turn off from the same menu.
To access the Autocorrect on Samsung Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1
- Launch any app where you can use your keyboard;
- Access the keyboard and tap on the Dictation Key, the one located right on the left of the Space Bar;
- Tap the Settings gear icon;
- Look for the Smart Typing section available under that menu;
- You should see the Predictive Text listed in there;
- Tap on it to disable this feature;
- Look for all the other settings and features listed in there (punctuation marks, capitalization etc.) and disable anything else that you want to get rid of.
The rule of thumb with the Samsung Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1 settings is that anything you can activate with one tap, by switching a toggle, or checking a box, can be deactivated just the same. In this particular case, if you have turned off the Autocorrect feature through the above-listed steps, all you have to do if you will ever want to turn it back on is to follow the same steps and check the Predictive Text option once again.
These instructions on how to access the Autocorrect on Samsung Galaxy J7/J8/J9/J6/J5/J4/J3/J2/J1, however, only apply to the Samsung’s built-in keyboard. If you’ve switched to a third-party keyboard, the instructions may be completely different, it’s all about the way your keys are laid out on the keyboard.
