Hi @ trevorcork,


Working with Microsoft Office 2013, give these instructions a go:


Open a new document > Go to the backstage FILE > Click on Options > Click on Proofing
You will find options to tick/untick to suit your specific needs. Mind you, the suggested step is for one Microsoft Office program (as in one computer). I encourage you to keep track of any changes in the event that you wish to return to the default setting(s).
If your computers are on a network and you want to create user settings, I can lead you to a Microsoft website which might serve your needs, however, I do not have the experience to provide any technical support with networking and group policy. Please note that this website is only my suggestion as I have not tested it out.
Let us know if this will work for you!

I can't speak for Word 2007 and earlier because I don't have access to same.  But for 2010 and later I will confirm what Softeyes has said.


If you go to File->Options->Proofing Tab you can turn autocorrect (or parts of it) on and off.


Now, mind you, anyone who knows where these settings are located could do the same to reverse whatever you've done unless you set up group policies that would prevent same.
