    Has anyone mastered the spelling checker in Windows 8?

    I'm an occasional user of Windows Wordpad. It's pretty basic bot not bad for simple text editing and layout. Its biggest problem has always been the lack of a spelling checker. But apparently, that got changed in Windows 8...

    Windows 8 supposedly comes with an inbuilt tool that will auto correct or auto highlight mis-spelled text. You can find the tool by typing autocorrect into your start menu's search bar. It's supposed to work with any text typed into Wordpad but I'm blowed if I can make it work. Setting auto-correct or auto-highlight to ON or OFF makes absolutely no difference AFAICT. Does anyone know how to make it work?

    I always turn off any checkers on mobile devices - they often don't understand slang words and try to replace them with some awkward words.
    Last time I've been using checker in Windows word... Hm, I guess it was 5 years ago, or so. On Windows XP. I hope they've improved their checkers in Win8.1/10.
