    Autocorrect misspelled words not working / can I use SwiftKey?


    I would like to have misspelled words in Dutch autocorrected while typing in the webbrowser chrome on windows. On my android phone, my keyboard (GBoard) does this fantastically. SwiftKey by Microsoft seems to do the same on android.

    In windows 10 PC Settings - Devices - Typing, I have 'autocorrect misspelled words' activated. For hardware keyboard, I have 'autocorrect misspelled words as I type' activated.

    Autocorrection does not work. I see suggested words (see attachment), and when I misspell a word, the correct suggestion usually comes up first. But I have to click the word to have it corrected.

    My questions: Am I doing something wrong and does this work for others? If it does not work for others, is there something I can do to get the android kind of typing on windows 10?

    My windows version number is 19041.685

    'Autocorrect/Highlight misspelled words' NOT working in Windows 10 Pro

    Hello

    I am using Windows 10 Pro on my laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad T450) and facing issue with 'Autocorrect/Highlight misspelled words' option. Windows is not autocorrecting or highlighting the misspelled words in any of the application. I have checked the following
    Windows settings and both these options are enabled there.

    Settings -> Devices -> Typing -> Spelling -> Autocorrect misspelled words

    Settings -> Devices -> Typing -> Spelling -> Highlight misspelled words

    I have tried turning off/on these settings but it didn't help.

    Is anybody out there also facing this issue. What could be the resolution steps to fix this?

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance.
