so when ever I ever I type on my word document the incorrectly spelled words ar underlined in red but when I right click them I don't get the drop down menu for the options of the correct word. I only get the option to add the word to autocorrect. has spell checker disappeared? if not how do I access it again. As of the 17 of march 2023 everything on my computer is updated. I would greatly appreciate any help

    Hi @Francesco Casareto,

    What the display language, authoring language and proofing language did Office use?

    What is the system language?

    I suggest you make sure 3 language are the same.

    If this issue is still existed, I suggest you provide a sample word about the problem.

    You can also run a repair of Office: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/repair-an-office-application-7821d4b6-7c1d-4205-aa0e-a6b40c5bb88b
