I just noticed that.

Hover your mouse over a minimize button to get the tool tip, it's spelled minimise.


I guess Microsoft doesn't have spell check? Or maybe its a funny virus?

Your "Windows display language" says "available for download."

Mine says "Enabled."

British vs American spelling. Check your language you are using.

I'm from the UK and when I hover over minimize, it's spelt the British way for me. However in control panel display settings, it says "calibrate color", which is the American spelling of colour.
