I am trying to help my mother who is 90 years old and learned the basics of the computer 4 years ago. She complains that with her Word documents every line is capitalized and she has to go back and correct that making it very laborious. At first we thought she was hitting enter at the end of every line as you do on a typewriter but it is not that. I feel it must be in the setting but can not figure out where.
