Using Spell Check In Chrome

If you write things regularly, you need to use a spell checker. The most popular browser, Chrome, has one that works well. Let me show you how to use it. 

 

Introduction

When you write a lot, mistakes will be made. Even if it is just social media, you don’t want to be embarrassed. There are many spell check options out there, both paid and free. They all have varying features too. Starting with a free and basic one is a good place to start. 

 

Enabling Spell Check In Chrome

The first thing you want to do is open your Chrome browser. Then, look for the 3-dot menu in the top right. Click settings. Select Advanced and then navigate to Languages. Make sure spell check is enabled. The slider should be moved to the right. You can choose basic or advanced. The basic version is plenty good on its own. I think the advanced might be a bit slower but either way, you can choose whichever you prefer. You probably won’t notice any speed difference. 

 

You don’t have to do much to use it. Once it is on, it checks everything you type in the Chrome browser. This can be Docs, Gmail, or any other site you open with Chrome. Adding other features is easily done. For example, you can add a different language or change a dictionary. 

  • Open chrome
  • Click 3-dot menu
  • Select settings
  • Click advanced
  • Navigate to languages
  • Make sure slider is on the right to enable

 

Turning off Spell Check

This is the same process as turning it on. You go to the 3-dot menu and click Settings. Oh the left side of the page, go to Advanced and Languages. Under the Spell Check section, you move the slider to the left. This disables Spell Check.

  • Open chrome
  • Click 3-dot menu
  • Select settings
  • Click advanced
  • Navigate to languages
  • Make sure slider is on the left to disable 

 

Problems With Spell Check

If Spell Check is not working, there are a few things you can try. Make sure your browser is updated. All kinds of things can stop working when your browser goes too long without updates. You can clear your browser cache. When the cache gets full, it can also cause many problems. Last, don’t use another Spell Check in combination with Chrome. You will get some weird effects like this.
