    Any one know how one can edit the personal dictionary that is made when one adds words to the dictionary?

    What and where is this dictionary stored?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Exactly which dictionary are you asking about? The topic is titled "Google Spell checker dictionary" but it is posted in the Internet Explorer forum.

    Yes, I use the Google tool bar which has a IE-Spell checker.
    I have added a couple of misspelt words and I would like to remove them.

    Dave,

    From the Google Help site, asscessed by clicking Options on the Toolbar, and the Tools tab in the resulting window......

    Edit the Spell check dictionary
    Toolbar for Internet Explorer
    Click the Start menu on your computer's taskbar.
    Select Run.
    Enter the following text in the 'Open' field:
    notepad "%HOMEPATH%\Application Data\Google\User Dictionary.txt"

    Click OK.
    If you've added words to the Toolbar's Spell check dictionary, a text file showing the words you've added will open. You can then edit or remove any words in this file. Once you've finished making changes, save the file by clicking the File menu and selecting Save.

    If you haven't added words to the Spell check dictionary, you'll see an error message telling you that the file or folder can't be found. Check to confirm you haven't added words to your browser's dictionary instead.
