    These instructions lead me to nothing that makes sense. The instructions tell me to click on buttons that don't exist. My computer is a HP laptop that uses Microsoft and has Outlook email. I bought this computer early this month (February 2019) and I've already disabled autocorrect in the computer, but now I also need to disable autocorrect in the Outlook email and probably in every other activity where writing is done. I want instructions that mention buttons that do exist. I want autocorrect to be permanently gone from all of my devises. I want autocorrect to be irrevocably gone and impossible to ever bring back to any of my devices. I did not intend to be buying mandatory autocorrect when I bought my devices. Autocorrect in reality is Auto Sabotage since it completely changes my words to totally different words that have totally different meanings. I want no more excuses. I want it gone.

    THANK YOU. This was driving me mad. And the way they have that selection set up, it doesn't even look like it's for shutting off autocorrect in general.
