  3. When will the scrollbar work in Edge? I saw complaints back from the edge beta forum... wouldn't that indicate a needed repair before it's public release?!

    Hello Sudharshan! The problem with the disapearing scrollbar happens in many websites but always on Microsoft web pages. It isn't just my computer as it was originally chased by a Windows 10 beta tester who stated up to and at the end of

    the testing period that Windows 10 and Edge were going to release the next day with the scrollbar issue he reported still ignored.

    Also just as the beta tester states, if one moves the mouse back and forth across where it should be, the scrollbar re-appears for a moment but disappears again soon.

    I also experience a disapearing scrollbar like he describes in the Windows 10 start menu, only when I click "All Apps" and try to scroll down through them. However, the scrollbar to the right, the categorized or my favorite tiles to the side upon opening
    the start menu always has a solid working scrollbar.
