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

Last Modified: 2015-03-11
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!
