    Edge


    HI all,,,in Microsoft Edge is it possible to alter the colour of the links you have been to as they are very similar and not easy to tell the difference on a sunny day.

    Hi,

    Try the steps on this site: Microsoft Edge – Changing colours What you're after starts in step #7 at Note but make sure you read all the steps before you get to Note because there's a setting in step 3 you have to select:

    7. Select either the ‘ Text ‘ button with the mouse or by pressing ‘Alt ‘ + ‘T‘, or the ‘Background’ button with the mouse, or by pressing ‘Alt ‘ + ‘B’.

    Note:
    You can also change the colour of any links on a webpage with the ‘Unvisited’ (‘Alt’ + ‘n’) option and the colour they change when you have clicked on them with the ‘Visited’ option (‘Alt’ + ‘ i ’)
    I couldn't find a 10F tutorial on this but did find a 7F one: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorial...-webpages.html It's set up a bit different sequentially so watch it doesn't get confusing.

    Have fun experimenting!

    You have to be an Administrator to change settings like these. You should be if you are the only one on your system. Here is a similar link to do the same thing. It may give you the same error, but take a look anyway.

    Well, It sounds like:

    1.) The UA (user account) you normally use doesn't have the right privileges.

    2.) If you're on a network say at work, then you'll need an IT person to allow you to make changes.

    3.) Your anti-virus / malware program is stopping the changes.

    4.) Worst case, some type of malware has taken control of your machine.

    ~~~ ~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~

    1.) First of all, I'd re-boot your machine and using the UA it boots to, give it a try. If no good change your UA to an Administrator acct. and try again. This will show you how to change: Determine Account Type in Windows 10

    2.) If this is a work machine you'll have to talk to your IT dept.

    3.) You don't list your AV in your system specs so you'll have to check that yourself. System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    4.) When was the last time you ran a malware scan?

    I checked to see if I am administrator in accounts and it says I am as it is a home comp and not on a network.
    It did not give an error message , it just did not do it.

    Then why did you say "It said something...." ?

    In the second set of numbers of my reply:
    #1) Did you try re-booting and then trying your changes?

    Please answer:
    #3, What do you use for an AV program and firewall, and
    #4, When was the last time you or the program ran a full scan?
