Windows 7: How do I get Spell-Checker to learn words?

My apologies to everyone but I must resurrect this Thread.

Callender is a superb Teacher who, unfortunately, doesn't reside in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, to assist me in resolving the problem I've encountered in successfully installing tinySpell, as seen in the image below:

Sounds like a UAC (User Account Control) problem. Do you have UAC switched on and if so what level is set?

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Default settings are like this:
Also if you right click tinyspell.exe is "Run this program as administrator" unchecked?

C:\Program Files (x86)\tinySpell\tinyspell.exe

Also try this:

Start> Run then type netplwiz

Press Enter

You should see a screen showing user accounts. Which account are you using to log in? Admin account?

Pursuant to your 1st Post, Callender, the Default Setting is as you have shown. Further, under "Properties" the "Run as Administrator" Box is Unchecked.

Pursuant to your 2nd Post's Query, "Which account are you using to log in?", as I am the Only User of this Computer, I am (by default) the Administrator.

Okay try changing the settings shown in the screenshot in Post #22.

Tick "Run this program as administrator" and also "Change settings for all users" then click "OK"

See if that works. It night require a reboot.

Also you can try launching TinySpell from an Elevated Shortcut to avoid UAC prompts.

Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

What happens if you navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\tinySpell then right click tinyspell.exe and choose "Run as administrator" ?

Does it work?

Your first suggestion appears to have worked. tinySpell.exe appears to have installed itself without a single hitch.

A question, however, is in order:
Though I've already uninstalled ASpell.exe (the plugin Spell Checker for Notepad++) was that a good idea?

ADDENDUM
- Pursuant to absolutely nothing, in your opinion would "SevenForums.com" appreciate a Desktop Icon of their own?
- Does "Bulletin Board Code", that's been capitalized, work in here?

That's totally up to you. If TinySpell works in the way that you need it to then you probably don't need Aspell.

I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean add a shortcut to SevenForums on your desktop then it's your call.
Personally I added one in the desktop right click context menu.

Add SevenForums shortcut to context menu

As far as I know - it does. There's a list here:
BB Code List

Pursuant to "BBC": I'd wondered as I had earlier tried Superscript [sup] and [/sup] which isn't on the List. It should go without saying that Subscript [sub] and [/sub] isn't either. So much for So much for Chemical Formulas and Radioactive Isotopes.

Pursuant to "What's an Icon?", I believe that the attached image answers the question.

Pursuant to this thread, we're not done yet.

In my previous Post I tried to use the word "formulae" and tinySpell told me that the word was incorrect.

"Plural formulas or formulae (fr'myə-lē') A set of symbols showing the composition of a chemical compound. A formula lists the elements contained within it and indicates the number of atoms of each element with a subscript numeral if the number is more than 1."

How do I teach tinySpell to learn new words, including its own name?
