Microsoft just released the new build 14946 for Windows 10 Preview and Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview. The new release introduces a couple of improvements to the writing experience on Windows 10 Mobile. One of these improvements is a better auto correction feature, which Insiders running the latest build are able to test.

With this release, Microsoft makes it possible for users to easily remove any word from a local dictionary. That way, they’re are able to manage their local dictionaries auto correction entries more easily. So, if you accidentally added a misspelled word to your autocorrection dictionary, you can now remove it just by tapping one button.

To remove an unwanted word, you just need to tap on it in the text box. Once you’ve tapped on it, a minus (-) sign will appear and you’ll be able to remove the word just by selecting this option. Very easy and effective. When you remove the select word, Windows 10 Mobile’s autocorrect feature won’t suggest it anymore.

“Now you have a way to manually remove bad entries: tap on the word you don’t like in the text box, and you will see a candidate that is the word with a “-“ sign before it. Tapping on that candidate will remove the word completely from your user dictionary and no longer suggest it.”

It’s refreshing to see Microsoft improving the autocorrection feature on its Mobile devices. It is well known that users often struggle with autocorrection not just on Windows 10 Mobile but on any given platform. In this way, any addition and improvement to this feature is surely welcome.

The improved autocorrection feature is currently available to Insiders running at least Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14946. We expect it to arrive for everyone else with the next major update for the OS.
