    Hello everyone

    So I've been using Windows Phone 8 (Lumia 920), for a year and everything is fine, but there is one aspect that annoys me, and that is the auto correct feature, or more exactly, how it works.

    So if I'm writing an e-mail or sending an SMS, Windows Phone keeps suggesting the right words when I mistype anything, the problem is that it won't auto-correct every time (like the Iphone for example), only when it "thinks" its suggestion is 100% accurate.
    And my question is why? Why it won't auto-correct every time? The word that I mistyped is there for me to click on it, but the phone won't auto correct for itself (like the Iphone does for example).

    Is there any option that I can enable in order for it to auto correct every word every time a suggestion is offered?

    This happens when the Keyboard is in English or Portuguese (portugal PT-pt)

    Regards.

    Go to settings -> keyboard and tap the language you want to change. Then make sure the checkbox "auto correct misspelled words" is ticked.

    Hi.

    Yes, the checkbox is ticked, and as I said before, Windows Phone sometimes corrects the misspelled words, but not every time there is a suggestion.
    For instance, every time there is a typo, Iphone replaces the word if there is any suggestion, but Windows Phone doesn't. Windows Phone only replaces the misspelled word when it "thinks" the suggestion is 100% accurate.

    Regards.
