On one of my computers word spell check no longer works. when I call it up, either by clicking on the silly little icon or by using F7, it sends me directly to editor. Editor does not let one change spelling unless it is already listed as an option. On
my other computer it still works fine. Both are Office 365 pro, word 2016 windows 10.

The Editor was released in April 2018 to replace the Spelling and Grammar check. Until about a month ago, it was possible to install a macro to display the old Spelling dialog, but that no longer works. We're all stuck with the Editor now.
If a correct spelling that you want isn't in the Editor's list of suggestions, you can click in the text and change it there.
I guess that the other computer where "it still works fine" shows the Spelling dialog. If so, it probably hasn't been updated since the Editor was released. Check the version and build numbers at File > Account.
