Damn “smart” quotes in Word

Tech Add comments

  1. In Word, go to Tools > AutoCorrect Options.
  2. On the AutoFormat As You Type tab, deselect the “Straight quotes” with “smart quotes” check box.
  3. On the AutoFormat tab, deselect the “Straight quotes” with “smart quotes” check box.
  4. Click OK to accept your changes.
