Windows 7: Office 10, Spell Checker doesn't work

Office 10, Spell Checker doesn't work

I am using Office 10. I have chcked all the right boxes Etc. for Spell Checker as you type.

When I type it is supposed to check spelling & grammer, it doesn't!

I click on the spell checker it ignores what I typed & asked if I want to check the rest of the document

If I load an old document it immediatly checks the spelling & Grammer.

If I save the document I just typed & open it, it will not check spelling & Grammer!

I never had this problem in Office before. What is going on?

I think Office 10 is a disaster! I don't want to create an "ILUMINATED" Manuscript, I just want to type a simple document & have it check spelling & grammer!

Hello Tully,

Try to rebuild "Normal.dotm" file and see if it works.

Go to Start under search type in %appdata% there go under \Microsoft\Templates folder and rename "Normal.dotm" to "Normal.old"

If that didn't work then Download OfficeIns and disable all the MS Word add-ins and see if that makes any difference. If nothing works then do a Repair for Office Office 2010 - Perform Repairs

Spell Checker

I live in Ireland. I set up my computer to use the following languages,
1. English UK Entended Keyboard
2. English Ireland
3. Ireland, Irish

After a week of tearing my hair (What's left) I found the the answer! There is no dictionary for Irsh! Should not make any difference when I am not using IRISH!!

However by deleting the IRISH language the Spell Checker works!!

I now find out, if a language that does not have a dictionary, is installed, the spell checker will not work!!

Of all the stupid "Features" provided, the one that would pop up an error for this is missing. "Nice Work Programmers"!!
