    Spell Check Has Stopped Working...

    Any clue how I engage the spell chuck function on my computer? I did a reboot last week and it's stopped working....

    I assume you are using Windows 10.

    Go to "WORD" and open "file" then go all the way down on the left and pick "options". Then click on "Proofing" and you will find all of your spell check settings.

    All I did was type "spell" in the search field adjacent to the start button in the lower left, and my settings options came right up......Ben

    Windows 7.. that did not work.

    I don't have Word and the search on "spell" came back with nothing.

    Windows 7 was the same.

    Do you have any MS Office applications?

    If you do, the map I posted will be the same as in Word.

    Okay, be a bit more specific about spellcheck not working. Not working where? On this site? What about other internet sites?
