How to Enable or Disable Spelling Correction in Internet Explorer 10 (IE10)

information   Information
Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) includes a new spelling correction feature that autocorrects and highlights misspelled words.

In Windows 8, spelling correction is included in both Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) desktop and Windows UI (Metro) versions.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable spelling correction in Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Note   Note
Autocorrect misspelled words - When turned on, will autocorrect the spelling of your typed words on the fly if it is matched with the correct spelling of the word in the dictionary. For example, type squigly and press the space bar after it, and it will be autocorrected to squiggly.

Hightlight misspelled words - When turned on, will highlight the misspelled word by having a red squiggly line under it.



This will not work in IE11. Use this below for IE11 instead.

Another nice tutorial, Shawn. So just for confirmation, if IE10 is installed on a Windows 7 machine, the "autocorrect misspelled words" option is not available? Only the "highlight misspelled words" feature is available?

Hello Lee,

Both "autocorrect misspelled words" and "highlight misspelled words" are available in IE10 on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

For example, type squigly and press the space bar after it, and it will be autocorrected (if enabled) to squiggly.

Thanks for the clarification, Shawn. If and when I decide to install IE10 I think I'll disable the autocorrect feature. Most spell check dictionaries I've seen (like speckie, iespell, etc) are overly aggressive with their "corrections". I've used autocorrect features that have changed wot (web of trust) to with or what. Or changed ie (internet explorer) to i.e. (the Latin abbreviation for id est.) You have to catch these autocorrect mistakes and enter your personally used words into the autocorrect dictionary.

Unfortunately in Windows 7, this enables or disables both options in IE10. There's not an option for only one of them.

Thank you Julian.

There could be instances where autocorrect may incorrectly autocorrect a word you are typing. For example, initials, local slang, or foreign letter marks.
