    a private question about malfunctioning of my keyboard

    Hello again!

    Why doesn't my keyboard recognise all English spelling?

    When I used to type on my "now declared dead" laptop computer, everything was fine with the English spelling.

    What is wrong with it?

    I check the text that I write every time I am going to send it to you.

    Thank you.

    What do you mean by "recognise"? When you type a letter, "a" for example", what appears on the screen?

    I meant to say that not recognised text is underlined with a snake-like red line, which means that the spelling is not recognised.

    That's not your keyboard it's the spellchecker on your word program.

    Or it is the spellchecker on his/her browser, if that is the case, you could simply disable the spellchecker feature, or even better, install or add English to the list.
