Hi All,

We have recently updated to Internet Explorer 10 in our work environment. We have a problem whereby all users are set to US English and we all need English (UK). Looking at GPO, there is no way to change the language. Is there a way to do this? If not is there a way to disable the Spelling correction over GPO?

There is 2 option to disable
1) manually disable from UI but i am sure you wont like this option

other way is create registry file and run that from GPO


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (or HKEY_CURRENT_USER)
   SOFTWARE
      Microsoft
         Internet Explorer
            Main
               FeatureControl
                  FEATURE_SPELLCHECKING
                     iexplore.exe = (DWORD) 00000001

The following values are supported:

    (DWORD) 00000000 - Features are disabled.
    (DWORD) 00000001 - Features are enabled for the conditions described earlier. (This is the default value.)
    (DWORD) 00000002 - Features are enabled, but only for elements that specifically set the spellcheck attribute to true.
