  1. How do I launch edge?


    Having tried and dismissed edge, I have gone back to IE11 as my default browser, but as this freezes up on opening a webpage I though I would try Edge again just to see if it froze on the same webpages but can't find it to launch it? Not showing in the programs on start menu?

    How do I launch my virtual drive

    Thank you for your reply. Your instruction describe the method of creating a new VHD. I don't want to do that. I have gone through the process of attaching the hard drive I already have on my computer with all the programs installed. I have renamed the drive
    and can see it in Windows Explorer. However, I don't not see the virtual drive listed in my start menu, nor do I see any way of launching the virtual drive. I would appreciate a work around for these specifics. Thanks.

    How do I launch my virtual drive

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern regarding the issue that you are facing.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps

    • Press Windows + X, and select Disk Management
    • From the Action drop down menu, select Create VHD
    • In the Create and Attach Virtual Hard Disk dialogue box you should select where you want the .vhd file to be saved.
    • Choose which format you prefer and how large you want the virtual drive to be
    • A fixed size VHD stays at the same size and behaves just like a physical drive, while a dynamic expanding VHD grows and shrinks as files are added to, or deleted from it
    • The new disk will now be displayed in the Disk Management window but cannot be used until it has been initialized. Right-click on the disk title and select “Initialize Disk”.
    • Choosing the MRB (Master Boot Record) style is the safest thing to do here
    • Once initialized, the disk needs to be set up as a simple volume and assigned a drive letter. Right-click on the drive itself in the Disk Management window and select New Simple
      Volume
    • When the Wizard opens, click "next" to enter the Specify Volume Size dialogue. By default, the volume size is set as the size of the entire virtual disk, but you can choose
      any smaller size you wish.
    • Next assign it a drive letter and then format it
    • Navigate to where you saved the VHD file during Step 4 in File Explorer, and double click to mount it. The virtual disk will now show up in File Explorer (and elsewhere) as
      a regular hard disk, and can be used just like one


    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help

    I initially couldn't find it

    Make sure you are looking under M for Microsoft Edge, not just E for Edge

  6. when you went back to IE, did you just change the defaults for browsing to IE instead of Edge?

    What do you get when you type in Microsoft Edge down in the Search box next to the Start button?

    It should show up.

  10. In the Windows 7 days I would have tried a 'restore' to see if that fixed the problem. But I have no clue as to how to do a restore on Windows 10.

    System Restore works exactly the same.

  12. Due to this and several other irritating problems but mainly that I lose my internet connection and it takes 10 minutes to sort during which time restart computer doesn't work, so its back to 8.1 for me.
