Missing spell checker

  golfpro 08:14 02 May 2009

Because of a complete melt down of my computer I have had to drag out my old one from under the bed. however I see that the abc spell check is not showing anywhere on the menue bars (its the abc with a little green tick), its on my laptop but not on this one anyone know how I can get it back. I am useing Fire fox and XP home.

Hi golfpro
have you tried pressing the button at the edge of the toolbar, pressing create or add buttons and seeing if the spellchecker is there?

I'm guessing you want a spell checker in your email prog.

If you are trying to use a spell checker you need to have a programme like Word installed.

I hav just downloaded it but can't seem to find any button on the toolbar to correct mistakes. The error is highlighted in red under the word, but how do you correct it? (Have was intentional).

If you have a red line underneath, place the cursor over the word and right-click. You should see a list of options.

ened. Thank you I wonder how many people know that? Its still not as good as the ABC checker for checking and correcting whole drafts but its OK.

If you want a good spell checker (amongst other things) for Internet Explorer 7 or 8, then IEPro is an excellent little add on. I am currently using it with IE8 and have had no problems with it.
