How do I make Windows XP, and especially Word stop trying to guess what I'm trying to highlight and just let me do it myself. I waste minutes of my time by having it try to save me 1 second. For example, if I type Hello There and I want to highlight lo Th it won't let me do it. It has to give me the whole words. This happens in all applications, Word, IE, etc, and it is annoying. Also, in Word, how do I tell it to stop capatalizing stuff for me. I done graduated 6th grade and can decide for myself when a word should be capatalized. And, most annoying. How do I tell Word to stop trying to guess my numbering sequence? If I want a list that reads: 1. Apples 3. Oranges 5. Lemons I don't want Word deciding that I meant 1,2,3. I spend several minutes trying to trick Word by copying and pasting to confuse it as to what I'm doing. I know its a nice program that is only trying to help me, but in attempting to save me 1 second, it costs me several minutes.
