    use of You and you

    Hi Sir,

    Please see the following sentence, I've confusion about use of "you" sometime people write "You" sometime "you" after comma, please give me a idea about that.

    "First of all, you shouldn’t spend so much time on the computer. You should go out and join a club or start playing a sport instead!”

    Regards,
    Abir

    The first word of every English sentence is capitalized.

    Re: use of You and you

    The word "you" should only be capitalised when it is the first word of a sentence or the first word of a quotation which consists of a full sentence.

    You might see it capitalised in biblical writing when referring to "God", in the same way that "God" is referred to as "He" rather than "he".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Also, the sentence which you give to demonstrate your question does not use 'You' after a comma. It has 'you' after a comma, and 'You' after a period.
    Did you actually have a sentence that demonstrates the phenomenon which you think you've noticed?
