  1. Cant use any other browser other than edge if logged in to my microsoft account on windows 10


    So i started having this problem before i built my new computer and the first problem i had on the new one was the same. So if i log in to my microsoft account on the computer so all microsoft related things and the user is the account etc i cant use as an example google chrome. So when simply clicking on the chrome icon it doesnt even start up. And i have tried various ways to start it up so that isnt the problem. But then i tried installing other browsers and suprise none of those started either and they all had the exact same problem as chrome. So then i just simply tought well il just lo

    Microsoft is developing a built-in ad blocker for its Edge browser

    "One of the first browser add-ons many people install to improve their online experience is Adblock Plus or something similar. Until recently, Microsoft Edge's lack of support for add-ons put off a lot of would-be users, but reports from Build 2016 suggest that native ad blocking is on its way to the Internet Explorer successor.

    Adblock Plus is coming to Edge, but built-in ad blocking would negate the need for such an add-on. A slide shown off and snapped at a Build presentation shows that the next version of Edge, in response to user feedback, will feature ad blocking capabilities. There's no word on delivery timescale, but the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update would seem a likely candidate.

    ZDNet's Ed Bott photographed the slide which shows Microsoft's development roadmap built around feedback from testers. Right at the top of the list is reference to plans to create a plugin and extension store for Edge, but it's entry number four that's more intriguing.

    "Build ad blocking features into the browser" is listed as a Feature Request from users. But the good news is that it is not only listed as being "Deliverable 4682811", but as "Targeted for the next version".

    This will no doubt come as good news for those who have fallen in love with Edge, but it's not something that will be welcomed by the likes of Adblock Plus. It does seem that, particularly in the mobile arena, there is a move to baking ad blocking into the browser so it makes sense that Microsoft is following the trend. But it is the fact that Edge straddles Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile that makes this a particularly interesting move.

    Keep an eye out for Insider builds in the coming weeks as the feature may be just around the corner.
    "

    Forget extensions, built-in ad blocking is coming to Microsoft Edge - [UPDATE... no it's not!]

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

  4. Cant use any other browser other than edge if logged in to my microsoft account on windows 10

    How do you prevent Microsoft Edge from automatically logging in to Microsoft Account?

    (As also asked in this unanswered forum post)

    Problem

    1. You are logged into a Windows 10 system using your Microsoft
      Account
    2. Opening the Edge browser creates a Microsoft Account session for you automatically

    Implications

    • Just navigating to outlook.com can get you access to Mail, Calender etc. of the account!
    • Giving the e-mail id to Skype auto logs you in and now you can make calls!

    Is there a way to disable this "feature" via a setting in the Edge browser, or worst case, a registry toggle ?
