It's easy to check your spelling while composing Gmail messages. Here's how:
- Click the down arrow next to the "Discard draft" icon at the bottom of your compose window.
- Click Check spelling.
- If there's a misspelled word, it will be highlighted in yellow. Click the misspelled word to see Gmail's suggestions for similar words.
- Select a suggested word from the list to replace the misspelled word.
This feature is not available in Gmail's basic HTML view.
Automatic spell check: Gmail doesn't have automatic spell-check. Auto spell-check may be provided by your browser, so if you need to turn off or adjust the automatic spell-check settings, please refer to the help instructions provided by the browser you're using.
