    Can someone help with this? I had an update last night/early morning and since then my Note 8 is capitalizing every word when texting. It's driving me mad.
    Any thoughts?? Let me offer that I am not at all tech savvy, so I need someone that might be able to explain as if to a 5 year old although the 5 year old is likely to have more knowledge than this old granny lol
    Thank you for reading this and for any help you can offer.

    Welcome to Android Central! First, go to the Settings>Apps menu and select the keyboard app. Then tap Storage, and Clear Cache. Does the problem persist?

    If that doesn't work, then you could try wiping the cache partition, which can be helpful after system updates. No personal data will be lost. Follow the steps here: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-36229

    Try switching to another keyboard to see if that helps

    Are you using the regular keyboard that came with the phone? If so:

    Settings
    Apps
    -click on the 3 dots in the top right
    -then choose Show System Apps
    Go down the list to Input Devices
    -then storage - clear cache and clear data.

    You can also then do the wipe cache and someone showed that link for instructions earlier.

    On the remote chance, is the caps lock key somehow enabled?

    Looks like others may be having a similar issue.

    B. Diddy, thank you for the warm welcome and the clear efforts to help me with this mess I have. You'd think when this kind of cash is spent, the item purchased wouldn't give one such trouble. It's not a critical issue, but is certainly very annoying. I wish I could say one of your suggestions straightened out my mess but I did try both, but to no avail.
    Thank you so much for your time and efforts...I truly appreciate both

    Take care,

    Gail

    Being one that doesn't have a lot of knowledge, I'll save that option for last ditch efforts. Thank you for the suggestion, NoteBuzer

    Thank you Amyf27,

    I went through your suggested steps and the other steps to wipe the cache but...nope.

    I greatly appreciate your posting the suggestions!!! Without people like yourself and these other great folks, what would we do!? Nice people really DO still exist!

    Take care! gail

    Trees,

    I woulda sworn I replied to you but it seems to have disappeared :/

    I checked the Cap Lock key first off.
    I'm on my way to check your link...thank you for sharing it.

    Take it easy,

    If all else fails download a different keyboard like SwiftKey. Follow the directions to make it your permanent keyboard.

    Go to Settings > Apps > click the 3 dots and go to Show System Apps > go down to Samsung Keyboard > Clear Data and Cache

    That should handle it for you, I had the same problem.

    I tried clearing the data and cache, none of that worked. I finally got an update to the samsung keyboard this morning to version 2.1.03.23. It is now fixed and working great so far.

    I was able to fix it with an update to the keyboard. Settings - General Management - Language and Input - On-Screen Keyboard - Samsung Keyboard - About Samsung Keyboard - Update.

    I tried every "fix" above - Mkgraddy's is the only one that worked! Thank you!!! I was getting way too annoyed with the caps!

    That appears to be the fix for me too! It was driving me nuts that every word was capitalizing. It must have been a software bug. Wish they would have prompted for the update.

    They updated the keyboard just yesterday. I guess the last phone update caused a bug. It should work after manually updating the keyboard.

    I don't have the capital letter problem, but I do wonder why I don't see a keyboard update like you are seeing. What is the version#?

    Go to Settings> Apps> Samsung Keyboard, then FORCE STOP it. It'll pop up with the usual warning to confirm, but do it anyway.
    I've been correcting every single word in messages, emails, posts, comments, etc. for a week, and trying all the fixes offered out there, but I figured it out on my own! Good luck everyone!
