Is it possible to use spell checking on folder names?

You can do it quick and dirty using the command line. At the prompt browse to the root directory , then type

dir /b /s > output.txt 

This will output a list of all the files and directories (and subdirectories) in the folder to output.txt. Then open output.txt in Word and use Word's spell checker.

Nice and simple. Word of caution, clean out your temp files first. I tried it and got a bucket load of irrelevant stuff. +1 from me. –  Joe Taylor Apr 26 '12 at 10:04

Could you not simply pull off a list of folder names into a text file and run a spell check on that file?

This VB code snippet will list all folder names on a computer, at the moment it writes to the screen but piping the output to a text file should get you a full list. Then simply open that list in a word processor and run a spell check.
