  1. Does the Windows 10 spell checker work for anyone?


    Relatively new user of Windows 10 (about a month). Before that, I was exclusively mac.

    I have all the settings turned on under the typing section of the settings app. However, there seems to be no checking of spelling at all. Is this just me, or is the spell checking really crappy?

    :)

    notepad windows 10

    Win 10 people at MS could write a spell checker in a days work, can you send MS email asking them to write a spell checker for Notepad 10? If not why can't you? Greg 9 30 2015

    Hi All,

    Spell Checker on IE is not working on multiple machines, the version of IE is 11.64.16299.0 (Update version 11.0.18 (KB4047206)

    OS version Windows 10 1709 OS build 16299.64

    There is no IE Addins for spell checker.

    Spell Checker is working on Office products.

    Working fine here, but only in modern apps (Mail etc.) and Edge.

    In which app did you try?

    Likewise. Significant desktop programs (Office, browsers, email clients..) usually have their own individual spell checkers.

    @lightwriter check in Settings / Apps / Manage optional features, if you have English typing installed. Should be installed when you select language, but just in case...

    @dalchina yes, I see now... somehow missed that desktop app in your post *Smile

  9. That is probably the problem. I don't use any modern apps.

    I don't think that there's any system wide spell checker, it's left to applications/programs to use it. All browsers I have use spell checking for instance. Even if I turn "Highlight misspelled words" off, FF keeps on checking.

    But they use their own spell checkers.
    In future more of them will be able to use system spell checker, as MS made possible to unify them. Will have to try new Open writer...
