You've worked hard for me. I've worked hard. Anything else you can suggest? Can there be some deeper setting on this computer that is frustrating our efforts to cure my ailing dictionary?
OK. After messing around with my Win 7, and remembering a similar issue with Windows Mail, I finally found the way .....
Start button > right side, click Run > in the open box, copy/paste this line ...... %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Proof
You should see something like.... lang.lex
( mine is lang1009.lex )
right click at it > click Open With > select Notepad
**If you have problem follow to this point, post back.**
Once you have the notepad opened, you'll see the mispelled word " iin " > highlight that word > click Edit > click Cut > You will be asked to confirm the change, click SAVE
> the mis-spelled word is now removed from your dictionary.
For your information :
You can find the lang.lex this way.....
