    spelling question

    can anybody tell me if it's possible to use manual spell check in windows 8? if so, how do I turn off the auto spell thingy and set up the manual spell check.

    and can anybody tell me about that ispell software. is it safe? is it full of trash like extra tool bars? (which I don't need) i'm getting to the point that i'm getting nervious about ordering any free software online.

    Hello Commander,

    You could use step 3 in the tutorial below to turn off Autocorrect misspelled words and leave Hightlight misspelled words turned on if you like to have spell checking in Windows 8 set the way you wanted.

    Spell Checking - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    I never used ispell, so I can't tell you much about it.

    Hope this helps,

    IEspell only works up to Internet Explorer 8 last I saw - The Spell Checker in IE10 is a lot like Google's Spell Checker. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it works fine for me, the errors are highlighted and you just right klik on em and it shows the options. I also like that I can type a word, like when I spell "Colour" it allows me to add that in, it is of course the way I was taught how the word was spelled when I was in the 1st grade heh. Other spellcheckers keep bugging me about it.
