Visual Studio - Turn Off Autocomplete Options

 The Autocomplete feature in Microsoft Visual Studio is a great feature but can be an annoyance at times. You can turn it off using following options:

Option 1 – Turn Off Once

When the autocomplete window appears, press the “Escape” key to close it.

Option 2 – Disable Completely

  1. Visual Studio, select “Tools” > “Options“.
  2. Select “Text Editor” in the left pane.
  3. Select the language you are using (C#, C++, Basic, etc.).
  4. For C# and Basic, choose “IntelliSense“. For C or C++, choose “Advanced“, then scroll to the “IntelliSense” section.
  5. For C# and Basic, check the “Show completion list after a character is typed” to disable it. For C/C++, you will have a few options, such as “Disable Auto Updating“, “Disable Squiggles“, and “Disable #include “Auto Complete“. Set any of these to “True” to turn them off.
