According to the announcement, Notepad will automatically underline misspelled words in red and offer suggestions when you click, tap or use the keyboard shortcut Shift+F10 on a misspelled word to see the correct spelling. Notepad’s AutoCorrect feature will immediately update the word with the selected suggestion.

Additionally, you can ignore misspelled words in a single document or add them to the dictionary so they won’t be highlighted as misspelled again.
