Am I imagining this, or do we now have a spell checker? I misspelled a word and it changed!

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...

Thanks, never mind, I have a spell checker in Chrome, but I was using IE.

Just found this spell checker for IE. It seems to work OK, it does the red underline thing also.

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.

grits74571, if you really want IE can't you just change your internet preferences back to IE as your browser?
