Microsoft Word: 10 Annoying Word 2010 Features (and how to turn them off)

There are a few things to keep in mind when considering Word’s automatic features:

First, many of the options you need are located in the AutoFormat As You Type tab (Options > Proofing). A similar set of options exists in the AutoFormat tab (Options > Proofing)—but disabling those won't do you any good with Word's on-the-fly changes. Users sometimes don't make that distinction and can't understand why the changes are still happening after they thought they'd turned off the necessary settings.

Second, some of these options may currently be disabled. You can use this list to selectively activate the features you want, not just to turn things off. It's not always the features themselves that are annoying—the key is knowing how to control them.
