How to disable word auto-completion editing a Notepad++ text document

Have you ever been in a situation where you were typing normal text into a text document in Notepad++ and it gave you that really annoying word completion that would autocomplete words for you, even when you didn't want it to, and would do it regardless of whether you hit enter or space? Or even backspace? Well, it's really easy to disable it...

No problem, just open Settings, then Preferences... then Auto-Completion.

Change the radio button from "Function and word completion" to "Function completion" and click close.

...and you're done!

Wow, that was easy!
