Just like a frickin computer.
When I right click on a word underlined with the red wavy I got what I said yesterday.

----
get
Copy
Search Googlle for XXX
Inspect element.

Today I get a whole set of choices starting at the top.

Just like a frickin computer.

Therapy,

Forget the video for a second.

CaptainBri and I posted two solutions that may work for you. Have you tried them yet?

Okay,

I'm trying to replicate your situation now.

Don't throw it out the window yet!

Re: new computer = no spell check

Could you possibly post another screenshot with the misspelled words and the right-click options?

Re: new computer = no spell check

Well, thanks for all the help everybody.

I have no idea why right clicking for the last few days suddenly changed after I started this thread.

But I do have a long history of weird stuff that no one has been able to explain.

I just hope it does not happen while navigating a channel at night with high winds, sick crew (with loaded weapons), dodgy engine, lots of traffic and a Chinese Rocna, requiring me to look at a paper chart after using a hand bearing compass!!!

OH WAIT! I don't have a sail boat right now - I'm good.

Re: new computer = no spell check

Please, don't give up yet! I'm trying to build up some karma for when I cast my lines into the marina and start dilly-bopping to and fro. What do I do when I reach into my port locker, and there is only chardonnay left, for instance? Stick with me man..we can fix this..maybe..
