Windows 10: How to get Windows 10 to spell check uppercase words.

    Hmm, thanks, so where are the dictionary files used by Win 10's spell checker then? Or, put another way, how does it spell check using an empty file?

    I'm tempted to assume the default.dic file per User is purely for customisation, meaning there should be one Windows uses for reference somewhere else.

    If there is a reference file, I don't have a *.dic file on C: belonging to Windows with any useful content.

    Yes I have read through both links and my best guess at this point is that the dictionary file is compiled, so we wouldn't be able to open and read its contents even if we had access to it.

    ...But I hope I'm wrong lol.

    Unlikely it's embedded in code- it's got to be related to language packs, for example. But it could be in some sort of data format.

    Hi, just wondering- do your dictionary files here
    contain anything?

    (You can open default.dic with notepad e.g.)

    If so, I think I'm looking for a copy of the 3 files for EN-GB. Thanks.
    Dalchina, those files are only for User added or excluded words. Did you try reinstalling desired language? And check under Settings / apps / Manage optional .... if any language options can be downloaded?

    Thanks. That's what I'd concluded (see above).
    No, nothing more to download. When I changed from US to UK, I did all the downloads at that time. I don't want to try messing around with switching language, as it is relatively hard to get all aligned for Cortana and searching Settings to work without 'Search results aren't quite ready yet'.

    I know, language settings can be pain in... if doesn't work as it should.
    I remember Kari have some excellent tutorial about switching language from default, but guess you checked it all anyway

    Best luck!

    It's so simple... and dare I say so stupid? Or maybe I am.

    The built-in Windows spell checker is effective in universal apps, not desktop programs.
    I believe I did read that somewhere.

    It does work for me in, say, Calendar, but not for text in upper case.
    Note: unsurprisingly, Tinyspell, conversely, only works in desktop programs.

    You could read that on several occasions here on Tenforums.. It is known fact. But how is this relevant to OP problem?

    Edit: oh, it explains your problem.. Yes, only in Mail, Calendar, Onenote etc (don't remember anything else right now..)... Edge!

    Hi, while my experience is that it doesn't work in desktop programs, Brink says it does work for him e.g. in Notepad. (You can read his reply at the end of the tutorial about spell check).
