    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).

    What he said was
    It works for me in Internet Explorer and some of the other included desktop apps (ex: notepad) in Windows 10
    I think 'ex:' was meant as an abbreviation for 'except/excluding' rather than 'example' in the above. I had Windows 10 EN-US installed as the upgrade for my OEM W7 (long story short: Toshiba's chosen OS for a UK model was a US base language!). I lost all my installed UK language packs with the upgrade to 1511. Rather than go through all that again with the next upgrade, I did an in-place install of 1511 EN-GB to switch my base language to UK English. Now, like Brink, I have UK spelling working in 'some of the other included desktop apps' such as IE11, but excluding notepad.

    Ok, I had read 'ex' as meaning 'example'. My conclusion is it seems a somewhat fragile feature, not to be depended upon, with a good number of issues reported if you search the net.

    I find it does not work with uppercase text. Autocorrect does work reasonably in lower case.

    While Tinyspell is much more consistent (and does work in Notepad), the free version does not allow other than US English; the paid version allows a range of other dictionaries.

    All upper case spell check works on my Windows 10 computer.
    Can you confirm that with picture (like in mail app)? It works for me in Firefox, but FF has its own spell checking system..

    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'.
    @dalchina

    Did you see that answer Kari gave to an user about complete switching of default language. Thought, that it would restore your language components, too.

    Yes, I had seen that previously, thanks. My interest in this is rather more curiosity and academic- having noted the feature exists, I'm not so worried about getting it to work in desktop apps unless doing so is quite trivial and would definitely work, as the significant programs I use have their own spell checker anyway.

    This thread has been slightly hijacked lol. I have submitted a support ticket to the developer of the application I originally posted about, and hope to learn soon if they have included a very broken spell checking feature or if it is in fact windows changing the default preference of ignoring uppercase formatting without a solution to revert back.

    *Steps back* OK carry on!

    OK, I am using Firefox, sorry.
