  1. Edge's touch-friendliness / suitability for tablets


    I'm holding off upgrading my Windows 8.1 tablet to Windows 10, partly because I'm not sure about Edge as an alternative to Modern IE11.

    Is Edge a nice experience on a 10.1" (for example) touchscreen device?

    I don't like Edge on my desktop; perhaps I'll see the point of it on a tablet. But not if it's fiddly and harder to navigate than IE11.

    :)

    Settings - Tablet Mode - Make Windows more touch friendly when using touch screen

    I was on my laptop.

    This did not help, but thanks for trying though. I know that about tablet mode already.

    What i wanted to know whas that while i was in laptop mode and changed that setting, why did it do that to taskbar while i was in laptop mode. It did not say to change modes. It just said to Make Windows more touch friendly when using device as tablet. It
    is only supposed to make tablet more touch friendly when in tablet mode. It is not supposed to change directly to tablet mode or at least doesnt say that.

    I am in laptop mode and switched this to a yes:

    Make Windows more touch friendly when using your device as a tablet

  4. Edge's touch-friendliness / suitability for tablets

    It's worse than Modern IE.
    There's no full screen navigation (title bar, taskbar and tabs are always displayed), no add ons and no swiping gestures (back, forward).
