    Haven't tried using Edge enough yet to either praise or criticize it yet. Just install another browser or use IE, as it is still there and till Edge gets more updates then can see. I have Firefox, always liked it, not a resource hog like Chrome, seems some have issues with Chrome just being on forums.

    This is the worst stuff included in Win Ten: No possibility of adding extensions = fast contamination.
    I wouldn't allow any child to use Edge.

    Edge can be removed by using a Program Called Windows 10 Manager. In the cleanup section is a area where almost any Win 10 App can be removed.

    Just realized it's also default .pdf reader as i see no pdf reader on Windows 10 like Windows 8.1 Reader. Have to see if the Store has it or use Edge or get Adobe's free one.

    "search with bing"

    Nope, I don't have that. It must be an extension you have installed. So you should also check your facts.
    Search with Bing, or Google, or almost any other search engine is an extension approved by and made available by Microsoft in IE's settings. It's been there since the beginning. How can you not know this, and why should we extend credibility toward someone who says that with a straight face?

    also you have to go to the website for the icon to appear in the favourites bar and they are very small on screen
    It's the same in Chrome, if you import into the bookmark bar, you have to visit the website for its icon to appear.

    WOW !!!, another incredible ommisssion you can't select text and do a web search straight from the right click menu.
    Do developers at MS actually use the internet?
    Do you actually know what you're talking about? Highlight text, right click and select "ask Cortana", this is Edge's web search. Perhaps you should use this feature to look up what "facts" are.

    The address bar is not at the top of the screen at all, if u click (or double click) on the magnifying glass it changes position to the top, but for some reason it won't stay there. I am looking at IE 11 now and the address bar is a the top of the screen.
    Hmm, what's this funny thing?

    This is why I have stayed with Chrome all these years, syncs with my android phone as well.

    To add with the not impressed with Edge, anyone else see this behavior?
    After upgrading from 8.1, I cannot log into Yahoo mail or any other web based mail.
    Once the user name and password is entered and I click Sign-In, the browser acts like I clicked refresh.
    User name and password are cleared with no error and a new ad is displayed in the case of my Yahoo mail issue.

    One thin I have to say, the Edge dark theme blends perfectly with the Ten Forums dark theme:
