How to Change Apostrophe Style in Microsoft Word 2010


The automatic formatting feature in Microsoft Word 2010 changes the standard, straight apostrophe into a curved apostrophe, which can cause display errors when you paste the text into a blog post, Web page or documents created with other software. To disable this special formatting feature, change your preferences with the Word settings tool.

  • Open Word 2010. Select the "File" tab. Choose "Options" under Help in the left pane.

  • Select "Proofing," and then choose "AutoCorrect options."

  • Select the "AutoFormat as you type" tab. To prevent straight apostrophes from automatically curving, un-check the box next to "Straight quotes with smart quotes." Click "OK" to save your preferences. Close the dialog box.
