On my newly installed laptop with Windows 10, I would like to get rid of the spell checker in WhatsApp Desktop software. How can I do that?

    I would love to know where that is coming from. I mean, which software is responsible for the spell check inside WhatsApp. I don't think it's WhatsApp itself, I see several references online to it being a Windows setting (but then changing windows Typing settings doesn't work). Maybe Edge or some other viewer that runs as a container inside WhatsApp?

I had the same problem. My OS is in english but I wanted What's App spell checker to work in spanish. So I had to add the spanish language to Windows and then in the Spelling Windows Options I turned on Multilingual text suggestions.

To turn the spelling check off I guess it's just a matter to turn off the options in Windows Settings and then restart WhatsApp.


To get rid of the spell checker in WhatsApp Desktop (and maybe in other apps too), go to Settings > Devices > Typing > Typing Insights > set it Off.
