Notepad++ Spell Check Not Working On Windows XP

Spell check is not installed on Windows Notepad++ by default so to make it work you actually have to install a third party application called Aspell. To check and see if Aspell is installed on your Notepad++ version simply open a new document, write a sentence, and then click the spell check button which is shown in the image below.
