    It has auto check facility, it corrects as you type.

    Hello njnitehawk,

    In Windows 8, the spell checking feature is a global setting that includes Store apps as well.

    Yeah, I find that it doesn't always auto correct the spelling, but it's good at pointing them out to you with the red line.

    Hmm, ok. I got a few questions below to see if we can get this figured out.

    What happens when you try?

    Where did you get your copy of Windows 8 from?

    Did you do anything like disable UAC?

    Are you using any 3rd party AV or firewall program?
