How to set the Word 2013 Proofing Option Ignore Words in Uppercase to off?

Hi Everyone,

We had an issue were an admin missed an missed spelled word that was in Uppercase.

In Word 2013, the option Proofing is defaulted to Ignore Words in Uppercase.

How can I set this via group policy so that I can have this option be unchecked for all our admin PC's?

I reviewed the group policy settings and but could not find any options to set this. I am thinking it is a registry setting but my research could not pull anything up.

Any information would be helpful. Thanks!

Note - We are using Office 365 click and run software.

To see the policy in GPEdit, you need the O2013 admin templates:

Or HKCU\software\policies\microsoft\shared tools\proofing tools\1.0\office, DWORD IgnoreUpperCase = 0

via GPO:

Microsoft Office 2013\Tools | Options | Spelling\Proofing Data Collection\Ignore words in UPPERCASE

or via registry:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Office\IgnoreUpperCase

Hi Vasil,

Thank you. I checked my AD and I do not see the option in GPO?

I also checked the registry and didn't see the Key in the folder directory that you are stating.

Is it possible I could create the key? If so, could you give me details on what the key looks like and the values ?

Hi Vasil,

I updated my ADMX template and I can see it. Different location however:

Microsoft Office 2013| Tools /Options/Spelling

Then the setting is on the root of the tools/options/spelling.

I set it to disable and we are good to go!
