    "Emoji" menu instead of spellcheck comes up when spell checking?? [​IMG]


    Hi, This is fairly recent and maybe the worst anti productivity "feature" have ever encountered. So I have spent 2 hours so far trying to solve it. It appears to be a feature that people hate yet have not found a way to turn it off. The screen cap shows that when try to correct a misspelled word in Outlook, or websites like this, maybe everywhere an "emoji" menu comes up. Maybe 1 week this has been going on. It is about 75% emoji menu and 25% correct list of spelling comes up when I click on misspelled word.

    I do not use emojis at all. How can I kill this terrible waste of time? Can not find the link now, but a Chrome support link had like 50 irate people vote to get rid of it and Chrome shut down discussion on it, and indicated it is mandatory.

    Help please.

    Ah opened outlook in IE and sure enough speller works right in IE, so it is Chrome. Any way to fix Chrome on this?

    - - - Updated - - -

    chrome://flags/#enable-emoji-context-menu Is supposed to have line it for emoji option, but there is no emoji option on that very long list.

    :)

    Dictionary file corruption is one of the possible reasons you're having challenges with spell checker. To further troubleshoot the issue, we suggest that you clear Spell Checking Dictionary on your computer. Follow the steps below:

    • Open File Explorer, type %AppData%\Microsoft\Spelling into the address bar, and press
      Enter.
    • Open the folder for a language you want to customize (ex: en-US).
    • You can now clear the dic file.
    • When done, hit File in Notepad, click Save.
    After performing the steps above, let us know the results.

    Spell Check

    Hi A.W.

    1

    What programs on your PC is that Spellcheck not working in?

    2

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Devices - Typing

    On that page, in 2 different places, you need to check if Spell checking is turned on . . .
