How do I fix autocorrect on my Samsung?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

One method to address the autocorrect issue on your Samsung device is to toggle the “predictive text” feature. This can be done by following a few simple steps.

First, go to the Settings menu on your device. You can access this by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the gear icon, or by finding the Settings app in your app drawer.

Once you’re in the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “General Management.” This option may vary depending on the version of Android you’re using, but it is usually located towards the top of the menu.

Within the General Management menu, look for an option called “Language & Input” and tap on it. This is where you can manage the settings related to your device’s language and input methods.

Within the Language & Input menu, you’ll find a list of various settings related to text input. Look for an option called “On-Screen Keyboard” and tap on it. This will show you the available keyboards on your device.

In the On-Screen Keyboard menu, you’ll see a list of keyboards that are currently installed on your device. Tap on the keyboard that you’re currently using, usually labeled as “Samsung Keyboard” or something similar.

Within the keyboard settings, you should find an option labeled “Smart typing.” Tap on this option to access the advanced settings related to text input.

Within the Smart typing settings, you’ll find various options that can be toggled on or off. Look for an option called “Predictive text” or “Auto-correction” and make sure it is enabled. This allows the keyboard to suggest words as you type and automatically correct misspelled words.

If the Predictive text option is already enabled, try toggling it off and then back on again. This can help refresh the settings and potentially resolve any issues with autocorrect.

Once you have made any necessary changes, exit the settings menu and test out the keyboard to see if the autocorrect issue has been resolved. Type a few sentences and see if the keyboard suggests the correct words and makes accurate autocorrections.

In some cases, you may also need to clear the cache and data of the keyboard app. To do this, go back to the Language & Input menu and tap on “On-Screen Keyboard” again. This time, instead of tapping on the keyboard you’re using, look for an option called “Samsung Keyboard Settings” or something similar. Within these settings, you should find an option to clear the cache and data. Keep in mind that clearing the data will reset any personalized settings or learned data, so you may need to retrain the autocorrect feature.

By toggling the predictive text feature and potentially clearing the keyboard cache and data, you should be able to address any autocorrect issues on your Samsung device. Remember that these steps may vary slightly depending on the version of Android and the specific device model you’re using.
