How to Check Your Spellings on Notepad and Notepad++?

Notepad doesn’t come with a spellcheck feature pre-installed like Office or other WordProcessors. The software is meant to be an entry-level Word Processor on which you are just to take small notes/snippets. Therefore, in this step, we will be enabling the spellcheck feature in Notepad and Notepad++. This feature will allow you to check your spellings on Notepad and Notepad++ and correct any mistyped words automatically.

Check Your Spellings in Notepad and Notepad++:

Since Notepad doesn’t come with an integrated Spellcheck feature, we will be installing the TinySpell feature onto our computer. Not only will this help with spellchecking in Notepad, but it will also initiate the Spellcheck in any other applications that you want. It includes two versions, a free one and a paid one. But in this tutorial, we will be making use of the free one.

  1. You can navigate to their site and download the software of your choice from there or you can click here to download the free version.
  2. Once downloaded, click on the executable to start the installation.
  3. After that, check the “I Accept the Agreement” box and click on “Next”.
