    Autocorrect misspelled words not working / can I use SwiftKey?


    I would like to have misspelled words in Dutch autocorrected while typing in the webbrowser chrome on windows. On my android phone, my keyboard (GBoard) does this fantastically. SwiftKey by Microsoft seems to do the same on android.

    In windows 10 PC Settings - Devices - Typing, I have 'autocorrect misspelled words' activated. For hardware keyboard, I have 'autocorrect misspelled words as I type' activated.

    Autocorrection does not work. I see suggested words (see attachment), and when I misspell a word, the correct suggestion usually comes up first. But I have to click the word to have it corrected.

    My questions: Am I doing something wrong and does this work for others? If it does not work for others, is there something I can do to get the android kind of typing on windows 10?

    My windows version number is 19041.685

    Hi, my experience of this (in the UK, rather than the US) is that Windows autocorrect works in UWP apps, not in 3rd party programs or legacy programs.

    Note the comment in this tutorial
    Turn On or Off Autocorrect for Hardware Keyboard in Windows 10
    - only applicable to US

    Now that's different to
    Turn On or Off Spell Checking in Windows 10
    where I comment on this:
    Turn On or Off Spell Checking in Windows 10

    I've just tried highlight misspelt words again.. it works in Mail (which I don't use) but not in Firefox or Wordpad.

    notes
    3. Turn on (default) or off SwiftKey suggestions and autocorrections for each added language you want. (see screenshot below)

    Hi,
    Thought chrome had it's own auto correct settings.
