    Also, you can open the right click menu from the system tray icon & press “Enable eType” or “Disable eType”.

eType only needs to have an internet connection to download all dictionaries once the instillation process has been completed. Once installed, eType runs offline smoothly with no interruptions.
We recommend an internet connection in case you want to:
• Download a new language dictionary.
• View Wiktionary results in the dictionary search.
• Receive future eType versions and dictionary updates.

eType runs on any Windows operating system, from XP Service Pack 2 and upwards including Windows Vista and Windows 7 versions.
