Add free Spell checker to Wordpad, Notepad or anything you can type on

Wordpad and Notepad are two windows editor which comes without any spell checker and probably till now there had been no application ever attempted to add one to them. These two editors might not be very popular but comes very hand when you need to do a quick copy paste without opening any other heavy application.

    Just have to say I love this small utility. Another tool to reduce the misspelling is TypingAssistant.

  • Yahoo! Just what i needed!

    And Excellent little program; once you’ve learnt how it works(which is very easy). Just right click the icon in the system tray and select “open spelling window” and it shows the correct word as you type. It’s great!! It’s definitely one to tell your friends about.
    Thanks Very Much

    Glad to find one for Windows. My Mac at work has spell-check built into Text Edit. Sometimes little things DO make a difference.

    Do you know if it’s possible to add Spellcheck to Notepad++ on Windows 8 ?

    Is there a program that can be used to copy MS Word to Notepad/Notepad++?

    At my job I have to do a lot of technical writing where I have to work in word because it has the option for adding short cuts to words so if I type ITAA it types out IT Administrator. The problem is that the software we have “upgraded” to has a problem with the formatting from MS Word. I have disabled and stripped all formatting from word documents, but nothing works.

    The only thing that works is to copy the entire document into Text Pad, then copy that again into the publisher, very time consuming.

    Anyone has a solution that would be awesome!
