Windows 7: How do I disable a Windows 7 smart typing feature

How do I disable a Windows 7 smart typing feature

Seems Windows 7 when I type in file names and it sometimes locks the first letter of a word to lower case and no matter what I do I cannot force it to change from lower case to upper case again. How do I disable this feature or can I?

example file name

Barneys Night out on the town.avi

"town" is lower case and I want it to be upper case and windows 7 prevents me to change it back.

I looked in some of the help files and cant find the right topic on this.

thank you for any help,

Hello Dathry1, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is because file name text is not case sensitive in Windows 7, so Windows 7 sees town.avi and Town.avi as being the same name capitalized or not. This is why it does not change when you rename it with the same letter.

As a workaround, rename the file to say town1.avi, then rename it again to Town.avi to have it capitalized.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
