    Am I the only one who does not like Microsoft Edge or Bing?


    My new laptop came with Edge. If I uninstall Edge, can I get normal IE back? Also, just how do you sort your favorites alphabetically? Nothing is obvious about this program at all. Much like Bing, I think Edge totally misses the mark (whatever that is). And I never use Bing. Any info would be appreciated.

    :)

    Am i the only one who thinks this?

    It's not designed to play video and it is mad to try. It doesn't make sense to use the RDP virtual display driver (lowest common denominator) instead of pointing a local app at the video source. Using a local video app will give you the best quality video
    at a much lower bandwidth usage.

  3. Am I the only one who is disappointed ?

    Hello,

    I use Skype from its earliest versions. I must say I am disappointed each version is less useful than old ones. For example 2 important things you "went backwards" on

    • The ability to save conversations/history to file
    • The setting that I can set Skype to automatically load when Win10 starts
    • When new chat came I got no notification except immediate ones, so if I am not in front or I am busy with other things I might ignore messages I got from others. At early versions the Skype symbol at program bar at windows bottom was flushing or being
      bold with number of unread messages etc
    Although I was big fan of Skype, having lost those advantages I am considering "moving" to other applications
    like WhatsApp etc.

    Hi

    IE is still there, its under All Apps and then Windows accessories, just pin it to start menu or taskbar

    also go into Settings, System and Default Apps, set IE back as the default

    And you don't have to use Bing in Edge. I've got google set as both my start page and search engine. I've enabled the home page button and selected my chosen site for it. I've also got it set so that when I open a new tab it lists my favorite sites with clickable large icons.

    It needs a lot of improvements and these have been promised by MS and will be coming soon.

    Actually I may have spoken too soon. It worked on my HP but not on my Lenovo (both recent purchases). On the Lenovo I set IE as default, hit OK, opened IE from the bottom tray, and the dreaded Edge showed its ugly face again.

    Not sure what I could be doing wrong.

    I still hope your teams win.

    Thanks

  9. Hi,

    Double check that it is IE that is pinned to the taskbar and not Edge, they have a very similar logo

    Did you set defaults in the Classic Control Panel or 'Modern' Settings?
    You have to set those defaults in Modern Settings:

    For the life of me I can't find the above page. I didn't know about the different types of control panels.
    Just purchased last week pre-loaded with W10 if that matters.

    thx

    I'm back.

    The bottom tray icon pulled up IE just one time. After that I get nothing but that awful Edge. Went thru the change process a couple times but it apparently never "took". I didn't see a save changes or apply button and did not reboot. It's like they REALLY want you using Edge (lol).
