Are you tired of your Mac automatically capitalizing certain words when you don’t want it to? Auto capitalization can be helpful in some cases, but it can also be frustrating when it happens at the wrong time.

Fortunately, turning off auto capitalization on your Mac is a quick and easy process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to disable this feature.

Step 1: Open System Preferences

To begin, click on the Apple menu located in the top-left corner of your screen. From the drop-down menu, select “System Preferences.”

Step 2: Access the Keyboard Preferences

In the System Preferences window, click on “Keyboard.”

Step 3: Go to the Text tab

Within the Keyboard preferences panel, navigate to the “Text” tab.

Step 4: Disable Auto Capitalization

Once you are in the “Text” tab, you will see a list of text-related settings. Look for the option that says “Capitalization” or “Auto-Capitalization.” Uncheck this option to disable auto capitalization.


If you prefer to keep auto capitalization enabled but want to customize its behavior, you can click on the “Customize” button located next to the checkbox. This will allow you to choose which types of words should be automatically capitalized.

Step 5: Close System Preferences

After disabling auto capitalization or customizing its behavior according to your preference, simply close the System Preferences window by clicking on the red “X” button in the top-left corner.


That’s it! You have successfully turned off auto capitalization on your Mac. Whether you find auto capitalization unnecessary or it keeps interfering with your work, following these steps will help you regain control over your typing experience.

Remember, if you ever wish to enable auto capitalization again, you can always return to the Keyboard preferences and check the appropriate checkbox.
