...they shouldn't be including it with Windows in 2019.  I don't know why they do.  Surely an update will rip it out soon.

Here's why:

Quote
"We recognize some enterprises have legacy web sites that use older technologies designed only for Internet Explorer, such as custom ActiveX controls and Browser Helper Objects," says Jason Weber, program manager of Internet Explorer. "For these users, Internet Explorer will also be available on Windows 10."

Fine.  I get that.  But Microsoft will eventually kill IE.  They're not going to be including it with Windows in the year 2030 just so some gasoline cap manufacturer in Florida can continue running 25 year old ActiveX controls.  At the very least, IE should be available only as a separate download for enterprises who DEMAND it, and during download/installation, the user should be repeatedly informed of the fact that IE is an insecure pile of garbage that the web is no longer designed around.  It definitely shouldn't be installed and enabled by default in Windows 10, because it's definitely gonna get used by a percentage of people who just don't know any better.

Microsoft Edge browser can ruin days! Can't cut and paste between tabs and when you try, hours of data lost when the most important tab auto-refreshes.

Yes, you can.  I just did it.  It's sluggish, though.  It's as if the legacy cut/paste system that's been baked into Windows for a reeeeally long time isn't being used.  As to the data loss claim, I'm not gonna bother testing that one out.

...in order to make a short cut for IE on your desktop, you have to be a geek inputting backward slashes and drive names.

you can't just type "internet explorer" in the start menu and then drag the icon to the desktop? 

edit:  No, you can't.  You shouldn't be using Internet Explorer anyway, though, and they shouldn't be including it with Windows in 2019.  I don't know why they do.  Surely an update will rip it out soon.

I've heard in other countries, computers just work.  That they don't deal with "optimization", incompatibility issues, or speed.

I'm in the USA and I don't feel like I've experienced those issues with Windows 10, and I've installed it on hundreds of machines with a seemingly limitless number of random hardware configurations.  To me, Win10 feels like the cleanest, most responsive and stable version of Windows ever.  It runs far smoother on older hardware than Windows 7, and it's my opinion that Win10 is far snappier on a given piece of hardware than any mainstream Linux variant I've tried recently.

There are annoyances in Win10, but they can all be adequately addressed/configured to my satisfaction.  Perhaps not yours, but that's how things go, sometimes.

And, it is a rip-off "theft", when they lied about shutting it down if BG came back...

Dude, don't sweat it.

Really?  So MV just changes names and avatars  by special request and "POOF" the Dietrich cult-troll "Ice Bear" (probably his own producer "Pavel Eduard Privara" ) is now the Dietrich cult-troll "Turiya"?

All it takes is a simple request in this thread!

Does Window 10's security cover downloaded browers too, or only the Microsoft browser on board?

I believe the Defender security client does integrate with MS Edge in certain ways, but MS lost my vote in the web browser department long ago.  Chrome has its own approach to security, independent of what MS has put together in Win10.

I am an experienced typist.  I've typed on all sorts of backgrounds.  But what is this very faint, puffy, curved, kind of unstructured, cloud-like background tint surrounding typed text.  As if someone tool a water color paintbrush and smeared it behind and around every word.  Is this a Windows 10 thing or my eyes?

Be sure ClearType is enabled.

Hey, MV.
Have you been keeping up with your music talent?  I'd sure like to hear some of your compositions sometime.
 ;) :)

I do have something in the hopper that I'm working on, but the harmonies have proven to be more difficult than I'd anticipated. "Desert Heat" to the tune of Driver's Seat by Sniff N The Tears. It's in the oven...

I also don’t recall buying a used laptop from Liberace either.  That would scare me more.

That includes the creators of this forum and the ellgab forum. They’re completely inconsequential in the real world, and only relevant to less than a handful of members on a couple websites who’s existence is readily known by a few dozen people.

Why the hostility?  I don't get it.

Well, that would certainly explain grandma's turn for the worse after us kids all chipped in and bought her a pc and an internet subscription.



I set my grandma up with her first PC and an internet connection.  Dead a year later.

Do you already have your 180 second dump button on standby?

180 seconds?  Good lord.  That's a lot of potential dumping.
