Add built-in spell checker for Windows

Professor Pickle
We need spell checking that's built into the software and doesn't have any external dependencies, because 21st century. That and comparing words on computers automatically is really easy. Come on folks, let's have a built-in spell checker already. Telling me that I need to buy MS Word, just for spell checking to work is ridiculous!

Can we also get spell checking while typing like every other modern software has been doing for years!
