Google Chrome Custom Dictionary
Google Chrome has a default spell checker to help you keep your writing error-free. You can customize this dictionary by adding new words.
When Chrome spell checker marks a word incorrect, right-click and choose “Add to dictionary” to add it. The next time you type this word, Chrome will not mark it incorrect.
Now, how do we remove if we no longer need that word in the dictionary or if we added a word by mistake?

- Click the X icon next to the word to remove it.
