Oh, Anonymous, you mean, "Spelt exchequers dew knot all weighs work wright" ???

For anyone who hasn't checked it out - this program if free for personal use
but requires Windows 9x or later, and Internet Explorer 5.0 or later.

I've been using it since kitchenelf posted the link and think it's pretty nifty - works when posting here and in e-mail, too.

One difference I have noticed, from others using it, is that right-clicking doesn't work for me. But, there is an icon (says ABC with a check mark under it) on the tool bar at the top of any IE programs and left-clicking on that opens the spell checker. This is probably due to something I have loaded that the others don't that is affecting how it is launched. On posts here, it's located up above the "Smiles".

You can get a simple easy to use spell checker plus a pop up blocker with the Google tool bar. The spell checker will check anything you type on any page.

I'm afraid using spell check would make me lazy. I want to do it myself! Who is it that circles my errors in red?

If you do not feel like downloading anything then you can also use this spellcheck site.

That would be Barbara and I, the two resident English teachers on staff. You should see my computer screen somedays with all the red circles all over it! (Not from you licia, I meant that as just a general statement)

I don't need no stinkin' spellchecker. I need a typing checker.

Then if you want to be really organized.. you make a new folder and put that on your desktop and name it installers.. then drag all the programs you installed.. like this spell check, or a new msn version etc, and put them all in there.. and your completely organized... ( to make a new folder, just right click on any empty spot on your desktop.. click new .. then click folder... then a little folder will appear on your desktop... right click on that folder.. rename it whatever you want.. installers, songs, recipes.. etc)

This is very cool, I'd not encountered this thread before. Just a thought though (I haven't looked into all the spell checking options listed here), sometimes downloads don't work with all types of operating systems and browsers, though if you've got Explorer (and use it, lol) it tends to be compatible with the majority of different downloads. Firefox and Opera are catching up, but still Explorer tends to be the only sure-fire one sometimes
