Spell checking in Google Chrome?

  spuds 26 Jul 11

I have just started to use Google Chrome, due to problems with IE8.

Looking at the spell checker facility for Chrome seems to be US English only, and UK English is not available for spell checking?.

Have I got this right, or if there a way to spell check in UK English?.

Try going to the little spanner in the top right hand corner, then go down to preferences and click on the link to under the bonnet, there is a button to change the spellcheck language. Does that help?

In the version of Chrome that I have it is found under the spanner, then Options, Under the Bonnet, Web Content, Languages and Spell Cecker Settings.

I think this explains it better from the FAQ in Chrome.

Thanks guys for the response. Got it solved now. In the language input it was showing as per my original thread. I had to place English UK below English US and English and click on add so it appeared as a new entry on column, then reboot.

Will tick as resolved.
