  1. How to set up typing shortcuts?


    Hi, I am wanting to set up typing shortcuts, for example if I type in syl, I want it to automatically change to see you later.

    I am not using microsoft word so I need it set up on my operating system rather than a program.
    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    :)

    Individualised typing shortcuts

    Hi JacobusR,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Are you trying to configure typing shortcut in any particular application?

    This issue may occur due to turning off Inking & typing personalization.

    I suggest you to try the following methods and check:

    Method 1: Turn on Inking & typing personalization.

    To turn on Inking & typing personalization and clear the local user dictionary.

    1. Go to Start , then select Settings  >
      Privacy > Inking & typing personalization.
    2. Under Getting to know you, switch the setting to
      On
      .

    Suggest you to refer this article about Speech,
    inking, typing, and privacy.


    Method 2: Turn on Text suggestions.

    Right click on Start > Settings > Typing > Hardware Keyboard > Turn on Show text suggestions as I type.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking Yes or No.

    Thanks,
