Windows Phone 8.1 along with Update 1 has got a lot of awesome features like Cortana, folders on Start Screen, double tap to wake, option to mark messages in conversations , VPN support, ability to move apps to SD card and more.
There is another awesome feature and probably the one which was present in other mobile platforms, for a long time, is the ability to insert a period ‘.’ without the need to press the ‘period’ button separately.
Simply follow the instructions below to know how to double tap to insert a period.
Note: You must be running Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1 with Update 1 to get this feature.
Whenever you want to insert a ‘period’ simply double tap on the space bar which will automatically insert the ‘.’ and also insert a space.
Tip: This double-tap to ‘period’ works in almost all the apps that support text input from keyboard.
Can’t get this feature to work?
If you can’t get this option to work, go to ‘Settings’ > ‘Keyboard’ and here press the language you are using e.g. English (United States)
You will see the option ‘insert a period after I double-tap the Spacebar’. Check it and your option will get enabled.
- That’s all!
