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.

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?
