Windows 7: Spellcheck doesn't respond - all options boxes checked, no response

27 Jun 2012   #1

Spellcheck doesn't respond - all options boxes checked, no response

I have searched thread but can't find recent reference so apologies if this is a duplication.

After finally finding their secret hiding place - I have all the settings for spellcheck selected, but spellcheck is grayed out and doesn't bother to spell check anything.

Unlike XP there doesn't appear to be any option of doing it manually.

Anyone tell me what's going on here? Or do I get a big old paper dictionary to refer to?
