Notepad gets spell check in Windows 11

Notepad has been around since 1983, so it took a while for spell check to find its way into the app. What’s more, your incorrect typing only gets you a red line with the latest version of the app on Windows 11.

The feature works in a similar way to Microsoft Word or Microsoft Edge. Spelling errors are automatically underlined in red and can be easily corrected by right-clicking to apply spelling suggestions. Additionally, Microsoft is adding an auto-correct feature, so that small mistakes are corrected as you type. The spell checker in Notepad supports multiple languages.
