Am I imagining this, or do we now have a spell checker? I misspelled a word and it changed!
Hmmm. might be what messin with my phone programs. ask in computer forum Bee.
Always been that way for me I use spell check on my computer ,It works about 95% of the time ,,
I'm on a laptop, not a phone.
Yup, if I type a misspelled word, it gets corrected. Very weird!
Even weirder is if the computer doesn't recognize a word, It will underline it in red, and when I right-click, I can choose the correct word.
Microsoft did a huge update to this machine yesterday, perhaps the spell checker was included.
My sister is a student , she has had Microsoft spell check as long as her Acer aspire . I think it came as part of the package she chose with her 2007 or 08 laptop.
A Google chrome book seems to be the new choice , Now we have five laptops , I don't think the original Panasonic book case counts though , and it is like picking up a book case while it is still full of books .. Little thing weighs a ton...
Which spell check program to you have to check the spellings in the forums? I would like that a lot.

Microsoft on automatic always does mine , my files, my notepad ,my internet , I think it came in with Microsoft office and word, not sure really
I have that above in my files also , didn't know it until we started typing about it here ..
this is what happens if you are using MOZILLA FIREFOX to view the internet ... are you?
Trust me I know. With my bad English I have a lot of underlined words ... I just click on them with the right button of my mouse and woila' ...
I did some research and found something called "Visual Studio" from Microsoft. I suspect I have had this on my computer, and the recent update activated it.
I did full scan this morning, fearing I might have a virus, but none was detected.
I was trained as a "touch typist" many, many moons ago - having my errors changed automatically, I suspect will make me a "lazy typist" LOL
I confess, sometimes I post to forums when I'm at work - no spell check.
From home, I have spell check.
Seems backwards - I ought to be able to have correct professional spelling at work
Then kick back and do e-Litterate-R-us at home.
I think any spell-checker is in your browser, not DG.
I never had spell check before recent changes to Chrome now it is everywhere did not especially want chrome but due to changing my phone from AT&T to verizon I have been denied access to my IE pages
grits74571, if you really want IE can't you just change your internet preferences back to IE as your browser?
grits-understand the chrome/android and IE fight thing. add IE as favorite or shortcut...just a nuisance thing
