    Recently Word (and Outlook) has added a new feature that it “predicts” what you are typing and urges you to hit tab to speed it up.

    If this annoys you, for Outlook click on File then on Options then on Mail then on Compose messages then uncheck Show text predictions while typing

    For Word, click on File then Options then Advanced, Under Editing Options, check the box for “Show Text Predictions While Typing” to enable the feature and click “OK.”

    For Outlook on the web, go to Settings then to View all Outlook settings then to Mail then to compose and reply, and uncheck the option “Suggest words or phrases as I type” under text predictions

    Note this is not new but dribbling out to the various versions of Office.
