    Hi. I have the highlight misspelled words option on, but it doesn't work anywhere, including in apps such as wordpad. Any ideas?

    I use LINE (chat application) and I'd like it to work there too.

    Hello Rob, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Is not working in any application in Windows 10?

    If you type helo in the reply box here, does it get underlined when pressing the space bar after typing it?

    Hey. Yeah, it works here, I thought that might be a site or Chrome specific spell check.

    Is it only selective places / applications that it works? I read that it should work in all applications, such as wordpad. I had hoped it would work in LINE. Is there any way to get it setup to replicate how it works on a phone?

    Normally, it should work system wide.

    In reality, it may not always work with 3rd party apps.
