Stop Google Docs from automatically capitalizing your text by choosing Tools > Preferences and unchecking the box next to “Automatically capitalize words.” Later, you can re-enable the feature by checking the box next to the feature.
Google Docs has a feature that automatically capitalizes the first letter of the first word in your sentences. It is one of the many tools that Google offers to simplify writing. If you don’t find the auto-caps feature useful, you can turn it off (and back on again). We’ll show you how.
Note: The automatic capitalization feature is only available in the web version of Google Docs.
