    What is this (in Settings)?


    I was checking settings today and saw this under Privacy>Calendar:

    This is on my desktop with Pro; not sure if it's on my laptop with Home.

    I don't see the Windows icon for any other permissions or anywhere else in settings. And, being black and white, makes me a bit suspicious about it... whether it is, indeed, a component of Windows or something else.

  2. Microsoft Edge - Settings - what is this text box for?

    can anyone explain what goes in this box? I was trying to figure out how to set my home page in Microsoft Edge - apparently it is a difficult feature to reach... I went to Settings, Advanced and saw this box with "about:start" in it - good UI for users to
    see What is this (in Settings)? :) - perhaps we are teaching every day users about methods and classes now?

    Me, too. Think it's always been there. Unless somebody else knows differently, I would not be concerned.

    Good question,...


    I've been wondering about that setting, for some time. I have the win 10 home edition. I've never had it turned on.

    On my Insider Win 10 Pro install it's set to On. I'll check my Home version the next time I use my other computer.

    It's to show or hide your 'Agenda' on the bottom of the Clock/Calendar.
    (I should have stated: "to enable or disable the entire feature")

    I think @Brink wrote a tutorial for it, but I can't find it.
    Pretty basic stuff though.
