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.

Also, why does your system have a picture of a bleeding heart and the tooltip "minimize"? :D

I wonder if Microsoft Sam changes how he says aluminum in British vs American.
