Spell checking in your word processor is a useful tool. But here’s a goofy way to spell check anything that appears on your screen in any application. First, install the Google Deskbar. (Internet Explorer only.) Then when you want to spell check a word, double click on it to select it and hit Ctrl+Alt+G, then Enter. This will do a Google search for the word and give you the results on about 1/4 of your screen. If it is mispelled. most of the time Google will suggest the correct spelling. But even if Google doesn’t, only a few hits means it is probably misspelled while millions means it is correct, or at least you are in good company.
