The auto-correct and spell check feature was working fine and just stopped working after making some changes to my system. I have followed these directions and both were enabled and I disabled them and re-enabled them just to see it the features would start working again. I don't know if these options depend on any other Windows 8 settings. Any help would be appreciated.

Added a new non-admin account, but this only affects the existing account. Also turned off many of the account sync features (using a Microsoft account to log in), and disallowed APPS to use my picture and name, location, etc. All changes were done through the Personalize app in Windows. Nothing special.
I have done additional research elsewhere on the internet. Even on Microsoft's forums, there are others with the same issue. IE 10 spell check works in APP mode IE and not in the desktop mode IE. Spell Check and Auto Correct were working, and quit for no reason. No other problems on this system. There were some reports about installing two KB Windows updates would fix this problem. I removed and re-installed them to no avail. Appears that the user profile gets changed (or corrupted - but like I said - no other problems) by some unknown method that causes this issue. Could even be a simple registry change?

I have since resolved it by creating an additional temporary admin user, used Windows Easy Transfer to create a backup of my current (admin) user (the one with the issue), logged out, and logged in as the new admin user, deleted the original user account with the problem, and then used Windows Easy Transfer to restore the original user account back onto the system. I then logged out of the temporary admin user and logged back in as the original user, and deleted the temporary admin user account. This worked, but was tedious, and time consuming. I am using the newly created admin account as I type this reply, using the desktop mode of IE 10, and it is correcting the typing mistakes I am making (a lot of them :)) as I type here on the forum. I'm sure that sooner of later the issue that creates this problem will be identified and a fix will be forth coming. Searching for "Spell check in IE 10 desktop not working" yields a few hits, but no solutions that work (I tried them all) except to create a new user account. Nobody thought to use the Windows Easy Transfer method to keep the existing user files and settings, but I had been doing some work for customers lately moving from XP, Vista, and Windows 7 to Windows 8, using the Windows Easy Transfer application, and thought I would give it a try on the same system. My drive was partitioned into an OS and a DATA partition, so I saved the Windows Easy Transfer file to the DATA partition and restored it from there as well. Worked great, all the settings and files were in tact after the restore. Only issue so far: I had Daemon tools auto start in the tray, and I had to re-enable that feature.

Hope this helps anyone else with this problem.



And by the way, I have been using these Forums in read only mode for years. Many thanks for the hard work put into this forum as well as the SevenForums. I refer to them both all the time. Had to join to post, so I'll be back with more questions (and solutions if I can provide any).


Thanks again,

James

Hello Nolacs,

The registry option is there for folks that like to package all the changes they would like to have done in one registry file to merge after setup. This way they can make all changes at once without having to set them one by one.

It's also helpful if you would like to use the .reg file to apply these changes to multiple accounts. :)

Hi, I've tried all of these solutions to no avail.

I don't have the addon for auto correct misspelt words loaded in IE11.

Spelling.jpg

My "Typing" tab in PC & Devices settings listed both Autocorrect misspelt words and Highlight missplet words as being on however when I checked the registry they were set at zero(0).

I have set both EnableAutocorrection and EnableSpellchecking to one (1).

How can I get the required addon?

Hello Rod, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The Spell Checking feature is part of Windows 8/8.1 as a whole, and not an add-on in IE11.

As a test, mistype something in the post box here in IE11 to see if it either gets underlined in red (like in the example at the top of the tutorial) or gets autocorrected. :)

I have a problem the other way around! :confused: I try to disable autocorrecting and highlighting in Windows since 8 but on my 64-bit version it stays on, no matter what I do.
Like in this thread: Metro apps still ignores the spell checker settings in 8.1 ! - Microsoft Community

I do not want to tinker around again with system files mostly because dism or sfc will yell about corrupted files -- not desirable. Any ideas? :eek:

Hello Anthropos,

Are the settings in PC settings showing as turned off, or do they keep getting turned on?

Is there a specific app that this stays on in, or is it on for all apps? For example, you might have a separate spell checking add-on or toolbar installed in Internet Explorer, and it's not really the Windows spell checking feature.

Hello again!

The settings keep being off and the registry entries are also correct (I checked the location mentioned in this tutorial). It appears that the spell checking feature is enabled in all modern apps: firstly it stuck out in the official Facebook app, secondly as I tried to use the Windows Mail app instead of writing directly in a desktop browser.
(If I remember correctly, the spell checking could be off in my Win 8.1 32-bit tablet, an Iconia W510, I could check this out later, but in any case it is not off in my Win8.1 64-bit desktop machine.)

Strangely, I do not have any add-ons installed nor any other programs to enable spell checking. The first time I installed Win 8 and had problems with this spell checking feature, I installed WinSpell to disable spell checking in Internet Explorer desktop version; but I reinstalled Windows in the meantime and never installed again such a program. I also try to keep my IE clear and do not install any toolbars or the like.

I rarely used modern apps for forums or anything where spell checking had the opportunity to do its work, but recently I installed the official Facebook app and then I found out that the problem still persists as I tried to comment on a post on FB; as far as I know this FB app does not have any internal spell checking feature but is subject to the general Win 8(.1) spell checking.

In that case do a search for all instances of EnableSpellchecking DWORD in the registry using the Find and Find Next feature below, and make sure that each one found is set to 1 to see if that may help.

Registry Editor - Find and Find Next

Uhm, but I want to disable the spell checking! :D Anyway, I searched the Registry and very entry of EnableSpellchecking is enabled, is set to 1; it kind of bugs me really because it is as if this setting gets simply ignored.

Oh, doh. In that case, set EnableSpellchecking and EnableAutocorrection to 0 (zero) to turn off. :eek:

I found EnableSpellchecking two times and both entries are set to 0, sadly they were set to 0 when I searched for them for the first time. If there is no other registry entry somewhere, I simply do not get it, why this setting is so stubborn -- or maybe my spelling is too bad to be left alone. :cool:

Are you sure? You just said they were set to 1. :confused:

Sorry for being confusing, but I searched for them then I set them to 1 as you said, and now I turned them back to 0; still the result is the same, no matter which value I set, my Win 8.1 keeps spellchecking. :confused:
