    I'm trying to help my 87 year father in law. He has been in computers since the 60's with a masters in computer science but never the less has trouble from time to time.

    Question:  How do you change the spell checker language on Windows XP Professional from French to English?  I have no idea how it was put in French in the first place and I have not been able to look at his system.  I am hoping for instructions to pass on to him so he can make the change.

     

    thanks

  • Probably happened as a result of a recent upgrade to MS Office 2007.  Google "Spell Check" + "Outlook Express", and you'll find a download that will fix the spell checking language by restetting it to English.
