Topic tags/keywords: question

I have had a spell check and lost it after some computer repairs. I am looking for the one that allows me to select and right click and it will correct spelling for me. Any help out there?

My Grandfather always spelled phoneticly, and many times, when brought to task on his ability to spell, I had heard him say, “If you can’t spell a word at least 3 different ways you have no imagination”.

Thanks for jogging that m3m0r7. lol

Thanks for the Lead Jim. I find it incredible that Windows 7 or IE 8 doesn’t have a Built in Spell Checker somewhere!! The only place I have it is in my Bell/Sympatico Mail.

By accident I just found on here ”Snipping Tool”. It’s now on myTask Bar (bottom). GREAT Tool! Pictures Or Text. Just hit Snipping Tool, Screen Whitens, draw a line around whatever you want and save it wherever you want, in whatever Format you want. (.jpg is the default choice)

Unlike trying to “Save Picture As” for a Picture and despite the drop down list it only contains a ”.bmp” Format.

Yet MS says .jpeg, jpg is the best way to go. To do that you have to open “Paint” and click “Save As” and choose .jpg, Then delete the original .bmp …..DUH!!!!
