  1. Language settings set UK but spell check uses US


    Win 10 Home. ver 1909 build 18363.476

    I have language settings set to default English UK in the language section of settings - time and language.

    However when I type an email in Gmail it spell checks to US language e.g. colour suggests color.

    Is there another setting somewhere I have missed?

    :)

    Spell checking language settings

    So, I am using Mail in Windows 10. My computer is set to English UK and my keyboard to Icelandic. Every time I create a new email the language is set to English UK and it checks spelling and grammar for that language. I can change this, inside the settings
    of the new email I just created (in the options tab, although Icelandic doesn't work, but that is another issue). But as I write most of my emails in Icelandic I want to change the automatically set proofing language from English UK to Icelandic. Or, as Icelandic
    does not work, I want to change the settings from spell checking all new emails to spell check no emails. But I can't find that option. I don't want to change the language of my computer though.

    Any suggestions? Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance.

    Spell checking language settings

    Hello,

    The language that is set on most Windows 10 apps depends on the language that is set on a computer system. For further help and reference about your concern, we suggest that you refer to the response of

    thread
    . You may also choose to refer to the other responses if you would like to. Most of those posts were marked as an answer and were found as helpful.
