I have the following issue. When i write a question/answer/comment the first letters of some words like "need" automaticaly begin with capital letters. I noticed that many of my posts get edited cause of this. Look at this example. Note the "Need" and "Show". Why does this happen?

EDIT: if i write Change without pressing shift it writes Change with capital "C". It happened also to the word show as you see in the example link. But since i corrected it manualy it don't happen anymore. It is not a big issue just wanted to know if it happens only to me or also to others. Thanks

  • A browser extension perhaps? – Stijn Jan 23 '14 at 8:54
  • I don't think so, because at home i am using opera and right now i am with iexplore 11. I also don't notice this behavior on any other page... – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 9:02
  • Can you add an example? When I type foo bar baz, after posting it has changed to foo Bar baz. – Stijn Jan 23 '14 at 9:16
  • I didn't notice this ever. According to @Stijn may be your browser's issue. – Sandesh Jan 23 '14 at 9:28
  • Could be... But then shouldn't this happen also on other Websites? – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 9:32
  • @Stijn it don't happen after posting, but immediately after finishing the word by pressing space. – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 9:45

  • Take a look at this: superuser.com/questions/663772/… It is a win8 issue which i can only turn using regedit :P +1 for Microsoft. I can't answer my question cause i am new so if someone wants to do that for me i can mark it as solved. – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 10:08
  • Oh good grief, what an annoying thing to encounter. You should be able to self-answer soon, just check back in a bit (the system should tell you how long you have left to wait). – Tim Post Jan 23 '14 at 12:27
  • I have to wait 8 hours cause i have 9 instead of 10 reputation xD – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 12:59
  • @Springrbua Problem solved – Richard Tingle Jan 23 '14 at 13:00
  • Thanks a lot! Now i have to wait 2 days to be able to accept it xD – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 13:01

    @RichardTingle true, but we can nudge him when the time comes. ;) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Jan 23 '14 at 13:05
  • I think i will accept it after weekend. But it is a good idea to nudge me xD – Springrbua Jan 23 '14 at 13:13

Sorry for reporting that here. It is not a stackexchange thing but a microsoft thing. The internet explorer has a spelling correction, which can be turned off (MSIE can turn on autocorrect — which is confusing!) if you are not using win8. If you are using win 8 you have to do it with regedit (How do I disable spell checking in IE 11 (Win 8.1)?). Thanks to everybody
