Any update to this unfortunate position,
I don't mind the wiggly red lines but auto correct is a real pain.
I've pretty much relied on Google toolbars manual spell checker as a workaround as it's much better anyway at predicting suggestions.

Hello Mike,

You could disable the built-in spell checking in IE10, and find and install some 3rd party spell checking add-on for IE10 that may work better.

You might see how ieSpell may work.

Anytime.

Windows 8 and 8.1 will allow you to have only highlight without autocorrect though.

Speckie - Spell Check Internet Explorer is another option which I use, but it has some faults such as not removing the squiggly line if you correct a word by typing or adding a new word to the dictionary.

I tried Speckie too awhile back I keep going back to Google for other features.
Speckie wasn't bad though at the time I didn't really get into the wiggly red lines to much/ preferred the manual button,
Cheers.

Is there a way to do this with Group Policy 2008 r2? Our computers are Windows 7 pro running IE 11. I am trying to lock them down to be library catalog computers.

Sorry this is an old thread.

The spell checker on IE11 has always worked since I installed Windows 7. Over the past couple of weeks I've noticed its stopped working. Its always been enabled in Manage Add-ons. I've Googled and search this forum and this thread is the cloest solution.

I found you can update the spell check dictionaries Download Spelling dictionaries for Internet Explorer 11 Release Preview from Official Microsoft Download Center

When I ran IE-Spelling-en.msu it checked and said KB2849696 is already installed.

I have FireFox as a backup and the spell check still works on there.

Anyone have any idea how I can get it working again?

I've looked and search Programs and Features Installed Updates for KB2849696 and nothing shows. I search for KB297337 which is shown but it still said nothing found so that search is crap.

All updates have been installed as and when asked.

Hello Keith,

This is for IE10 instead of IE11.
