Windows 10 Tip: How to Turn on Spell Check and Auto Correct in All Programs
This tip is for Windows 10 version 1803 and newer versions of Windows 10
Most of you know that programs like MS Office Word and other word processing programs offer spell check and auto-correct. And you’ve probably noticed these features are missing in other Windows programs like Notepad.
Windows 10 now lets you enable spell check and auto-correct for all programs. However, these features are not turned on by default. Here is how to enable spell check and auto-correct in Windows 10 for those of you using a hardware keyboard — that’s the kind of keyboard that’s on your laptop and like the ones that come with desktops / all-in-ones,
1.) Type the word TYPING in taskbar search.
2.) When Typing – in Settings – opens, under “Spelling” you can turn on “Autocorrect misspelled words” and “Highlight misspelled words”.
Under the sub-heading “Hardware keyboard” you can turn on “Show text suggestions as I type” and “Autocorrect misspelled words”
Note that as of now, hardware keyboard settings are available for U.S. English only.
