Windows 10: Spell Check Enabled but not working

    Spell Check Enabled but not working


    Hi.

    Have creators update installed, spell check as I go is enabled and spell check in general under typing settings is also enabled, but inside of Gmail and my other Web Email it doesn't highlight errors as it finds them. I checked the registry and both are enabled there as well?
    Tried it on IE11 and Edge on 2 computers, once it works, the other not.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Hi there, networkn. What do you mean "once it works, the other not"? Did you mean "one it works, the other not"?

    I'll assume it works in IE and not Edge. Edge is iffy at times. Comes and goes.

    Is this when you're signed into Gmail I take it? If so, I would think it's that editor that's not working.

    Sorry, I'll clarify. I have 2 computers running W10 creators update. Spell check works find in Gmail and my other app on one and the other it doesn't work.
    Settings are identical to the best of my abilitty to check.

    Ok. I see. On the one that's broke, run these two in this order. Make sure you run scannow at least 3 times, even if says nothing was found. This will take some time. You can use your PC while they're running.
