Windows 7: Where is User Dictionary for Google Toolbar Spellcheck?

Where is User Dictionary for Google Toolbar Spellcheck?

Hello,

I have been trying to collect all of my back-up necessary files into my "My Documents" folder, so I don't have to maintain a list or archive of all the different locations of them. I can just backup or copy the Documents folder regularly and as needed.

I would like to know where the user dictionary is for the Google Toolbar Spellchecker, the one that is created when you click "Add to Dictionary" in Spell Check? Then I want to know if I can direct the Google Toolbar to put it in the My Documents folder?

I know this is a remote possibility, but is there any way that Office 2010 and Google Toolbar can share the same user dictionary?

I appreciate any help that is offered. Take good care,

~Antonio

I don't use google toolbar spellchecker myself (didn't even know it existed!) but apparently the location is at:

"%HOMEPATH%\Application Data\Google\User Dictionary.txt

I got this information from: Spell Check : Toolbar features - Toolbar Help

I can't help you with the other queries as I honestly don't know.

FoxIX,

Thanks for the fast response! I checked it out, and there does no seem to be a way to change the pointer to another location for the Google Toolbar user dictionary. Although if there were, it could probably share one with Office 2010, because they are both text files. I have sent a request to Google for this functionality.

Best wishes,

~Antonio

In Windows 7 the path to the Google dictionary is:
%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Roaming\Google\User Dictionary.txt
