Spell check does not work in Office 2010. Intellisense does not detect incorrectly spelled words and manually running spell check does not work either.
- Click on Office Button | Word Options | Add-Ins | Manage: Disabled Items. If you see any disabled items that relate to spelling, try enabling them.
- If the previous suggestion doesn’t help, then:
a. Close Word and any other open applications.
b. Click on Start | Run | Open and type “regedit” (without the quotation marks).
c. If the following key exists, delete it.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Overrided.
d. Exit the Registry Editor.
e. Restart your computer.
NOTE TO SUPPORT STAFF: The Windows 7 registry editor will prompt for an administrator password. It will show the HKEY_CURRENT_USER tree for the user credentials provided. Have the non-admin provide his or her credentials or you will not see the correct tree.
