Keyboard autofill: how to customize dictionary

    When I use my Samsung Galaxy S10 keyboard to type an email or whatever, it will prompt me with suggestions. If I start typing "Res," it might offer Rest, Resume, & Respond above the virtual keyboard, so I can just touch one of the words rather than typing the whole word out.

    Can I customize this? If I happen to have a friend named "Stephanie," can I set it up so that whenever I type in "Ste," it will include "Stephanie" among those suggestions? And conversely, if it offers up weird words I never use, can I remove them from the "dictionary" so they're no longer included among the suggestions?

    Welcome to Android Forums @stuartresnick :)

    when I type "plet" it looks like this


    Lets say I want to remove "Plettenberg" form my dictionary, I simply long press the word above my keyboard.


    to add just tap the typed word as displayed above your keyboard suggestion.
