Notepad debuts spell checker and automatic correction 40 years after its launch

Microsoft Notepad has begun to implement the spell checker and the automatic corrector, which have arrived to this text editor almost 40 years after it was released in the operating system it develops.

The company began enabling both features – very similar to those offered in Microsoft Word – a few months ago, with version 11.2402.22.0 of the tool, which first reached Windows Insider members through the Beta and Release Preview channels.

With the aim of making them available to all Windows 11 users, Microsoft has already begun enabling these automatic correction and spelling features to more users, who are coming to this program almost 40 years after its launch in Windows.

This was recently confirmed by The Verge, which pointed out that both correction formats can be disabled from the Notepad Settings section for certain types of files, such as those associated with encoding.

With the spell checker enabled, words that are misspelled will be underlined in red to show the errors, and right-clicking will show spelling suggestions, as noted on his blog.

With the auto-correct tool, however, misspelled words will be corrected as you type in Notepad, which also supports multiple languages ​​and allows you to add words to a dictionary.

This program also supports a shortcut, Shift + F10, when entering a misspelled word to get spelling suggestions. Selecting one of them will immediately update the word.
