The spell checker is controlled together with the syntax highlighter
(you may have noticed that commands like \textbf are not flagged). The
syntax highlighter is configured in the file
<resources>/configuration/syntax-patterns.txt (where <resources> is the
TeXworks resource directory which can be located using Help > Settings
and Resources). There, you could add a line for \Href and disable the
spell checker for this command. How to do that is documented at the
beginning of the syntax-patterns.txt file.
