Spell Checker not working in Chrome

Recently I found spell check not working in Google chrome and wondered why this had happened. It turns out chrome had updated to Version 22.0.1229.79 m and this broke the spell checker. I searched and searched for an answer on the web, but could not find a solution. Eventually, I decided to look into the settings and toy with it to see if it would help and it did!

I now have spell checking in Google chrome and the fix was very easy. In fact, I only had to change one option to get it to work again.

Here’s how I did it:

  1. Open Google chrome and go to the Settings
  2. Click Show advanced settings…
  3. Under Privacy uncheck Use a web service to help resolve spelling errors
  4. Refresh your tabs or just restart Chrome
  5. Spell checker should now work in Chrome
