    You are awesome. I tried and I wonder what exactly changed. I should've backed up my prefs and then did a diff between the two; the old one and the new one. I actually WANT this to happen again.

    Thank you so much! My emails have been shocking for weeks since the red squiggly line disappeared.

  4. Jethro Gillgren

    Would love to see an updated version, as this is now out of date and doesn't work.

  5. Terri Rickman

    Thank you ever so much, an Advanced Tech Support site could not fix this and you did !!!

    Spell a word incorrectly; highlight that word; then right click; highlight "spell check" in the dialogue box; click "Language settings"; (a new tab will open); Turn on "spell check" under Languages. This worked for me as of November 12, 2019

    My problem is a bit different the red line is there and whatnot but when I go to click for the correct spelling it won't register.
    Any suggestions?

  9. Mine isn't grayed out. It's turned on.
    But the red line under incorrect spellings disappears and slowly reappears. Sometimes it disappears as I right-click and the correction option doesn't show up. Other times, I click the correct word and it doesn't update the incorrect spelling.

    The only place mine doesn't work is in Hotmail using Chrome. It's like Hotmail is blocking all spell checking.

    The spellcheck is enabled, but not working, or working erratically and randomly. Options aren't grayed out… I can change the language, if I want, easily… it just doesn't WORK.

  14. My version of W10 is apparently way different from yours. These popups are not available on any of my PC's. It's even different from one W10 pc to another. They say completely different things. Nothing says check spelling of text fields. Nothing says all languages.

    My spell check is on. It sometimes tells me a word is misspelled but if I keep typing out the sentace in periodocially appear and disappears as i complete the sentance.

    If before you do anything of help you ask for a subscribe you do not get one, you get a thumbs down. Your fix didn't work.

    Thanks for the tips. hat about this.

    On a fresh Brave browser install, when writting words with spelling mistakes, no squiggly line under the wrong words.

    On settings-advanced-language this is written-

    "Spell check dictionary download failed.

    Please check with your network administrator to make sure that the firewall is not blocking downloads from Brave servers."

    Stopped both windose firewall, and antiviruse, and still got the same message.


    Thanks in advancd.
