How to disable/enable AutoCorrect setting "Capitalize first letter of table cells" in Word 2016 over GPO or GPP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, how can I disable/enable the autocorrect setting "Capitalize first letter of table cells" in Microsoft Word 2016 over group policy settings (or group policy preferences aka registry).

    Under Microsoft Office 2010 I could set this i.e. per registry:

    Path: HCU\software\microsoft\office\14.0\common\autocorrect
    Name: CapTable
    Value: 0 ( == disable / 1 == enable)

    Best regards

  • Hi cx-2,

    I tested this problem in my environment and I didn't find the GPO for AutoCorrect setting "Capitalize first letter of table cells" in Word 2016.

    As far as I know you can custom GPO for specified option.

    I also didn't find the regedit key for this option in Word.

    I can use code to control this option in Word:

    Sub Macro1()
    '
    ' Macro1 Macro
    '
    '
        With Options
        End With
        With AutoCorrect
            .CorrectTableCells = True
        End With
        With Options
        End With
    End Sub

    You can save the code to normal.dotm file, when you open Word it will load the file automatic and run the code to set the setting in Word.

    Any updates please let me know, I'm glad to help you.

  • Hi Emi, not really.

    Your solution is good, but to much effort for my environment. I would prefere to set the value over the group policy preferences only for one time without to have to touch the normal.dot => normal.dotm. (Macro functionality is per GPO disabled).

    Thank you.

    best regards

  • Good afternoon

    We have the same problem.
    Is there really no registry key for this (anymore) ?

    Best greetings

  • I know next to nothing about group policies.

    I would never be broadcasting changes to the normal template on established installations.

    One way to approach this would be to put the macro into an AutoExec macro in a template loaded as a Global Template by placing it in the Word Startup Folder. Puttting the template in that folder and updating it could be a part of the network log-in script.
