If this is the case then how can anyone on here can say either when or why?
These are questions for MS.

What version of Word are you running as I am surprised it has no spell check? I have a laptop with Word Starter on it and that has a spell check on the ribbon at the right hand side.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Notepad and Wordpad are both very simple programs where a spell checker would be quite out of place. If you want a text editor with spell check there are a number of free office suites that can be downloaded. One such is Libre Office:
https://www.libreoffice.org/

There are others as well.

If Microsoft were to include a full featured text editing program with Windows this would result in some serious legal problems. This would leave many commercial programs without a market and the companies selling them would see Microsoft as having an unfair advantage. And the courts would agree. To meet legal requirements of the European Union Microsoft was forced to release a special N version of Windows Vista and later that did not include Media Player and related applications.

✔ Best Answer
Since "word" was mentioned in the question then I assume it was about MS Word. Sure, WordPad and NotePad have no spell checker if that's what the original poster meant. Only he can clarify.

Some people are never satisfied.

You get Windows 10 for nowt (at least I assume you did) but still you complain there's something missing!

Windows has never had a built-in spell checker so why complain about this version?

I've heard very good reports about this freebie (apparently less lumbering than Libre Office):

If you are not too concerned about compatibility with MS Word then there is this little freebie:

"I still can't afford full blowned office. I just don't under stand."

Yes you can. They're called free (open-source)
