VS 2022 roadmap promised a built-in spell checker yet I'm not finding any settings under Tools->Options that match keyword "spell" nor do I see any spell checker like red lines informing me of bad spelling in any comments in code.

The Visual Studio 2022 editor will have a built-in spell-checker to help you code more accurately with fewer errors.

    I make comments in Dutch. The spell checker looks for english, marks the Dutch as errors and make the code badly readable.

    I cannot swith off the spell check. It would be nice if this was possible

    YES! There's a checkbox for such thing, named "Text spell checker".

    You can find it under Tools->Options->Environment->Preview Features->Text spell checker
