    I was just posting on another forum using W10hp on my laptop and the name of the South American country of Uraguay got underlined (it is underlined as I type this). I immediately googled Uraguay to confirm that I had spelt it correctly.
    Not a very good result for spellchecking.

    Uraguay get's underlined for me too. The correction suggested (right-click on it) is Uruguay which is, apparently, the correct spelling.

    Dead right, between opening up another edge for google, I had completely missed the change in spelling. They don't call me Old for nothing. Apologies to the spellchecker people.

As above, gone into Settings/devices/typing/spelling, and there set to 'highlight misspelled words'. Trouble is, it doesn't do it, not anywhere. Anyone know why?
