How do I turn off suggestion when using Touch keyboard on Windows 11

Marie Phillips 0 Reputation points


I need to turn off the text suggestions on the Touch Keyboard, the keyboard that pops up when typing in a textbox on Windows 11 Surface Pro tablet.

I cannot find any settings related to this, not in Settings and not in the Registry. I only find settings related to physical and On-Screen keyboards.

How do I disable suggestions on the Touch Keyboard in Windows11? They are causing an app to malfunction because they interfere with a textbox event used to create dropdown with suggestions in the app when user starts typing.

Thank you!

    Disabling text suggestions on the Touch Keyboard in Windows 11 can be done through the "Typing" settings. Here's how to do it:

    Open "Settings":

    Click the Start button and select the gear-shaped icon to open "Settings."

    Go to "Privacy & Security":

    In the Settings window, click on "Privacy & Security" in the left sidebar.

    Select "Typing" from the sidebar:

    In the "Privacy & Security" section, select "Typing" from the left sidebar.

    Turn Off "Show text suggestions as I type":

    Under the "Touch Keyboard" section, you'll see an option called "Show text suggestions as I type." Toggle this option to the "Off" position.

    By turning off this setting, you should disable text suggestions on the Touch Keyboard in Windows 11. This can help prevent interference with your app's functionality when users start typing in a textbox.
