    What's Spartan's final name going to be? Is that still up in the air?

    I thought there was still rumors it was going to be 'Edge', or 'Spartan Edge'.
    Makes a little bit of sense:

    Some observations:

    - the scroll bar track is translucent, and
    - if you idle your cursor, wait for the scroll bar to disappear, then scroll again without moving your cursor, the scroll bar becomes thin and trackless.
    - moving your cursor over a video, (YouTube for starters), it stutters like crazy unless you turn off the Flash Player in settings and go HTML
    - media will NOT keep playing with Spartan minimized to the taskbar.
    - YouTube videos don't actually go full screen.

    Normally, in Windows 10, I can right click on an app and then click on "Open File Location", and add it to my Quick Launch Bar, but when I try that with Spartan, it just will not work. I get Unpin from Start, Pin to Taskbar and Uninstall; no way to Open File Location so I can pin it to QL.

    Sooooooo, I searched for and finally found Spartan (Microsoft seems to want to hide everything from me!). There are three "applications", Spartan (with a little green and white box), Spartan Edge (with an open globe) and Spartan Legacy (with an open globe). So I pinned them one at the time to Quick Launch, and one after the other, they refused to open Spartan for me!

    Secondly, I cannot find any setting to make Spartan my default browser so I can actually test it. So far, the only way to open Spartan is from that joke of a Start Menu. It won't even open when I click on the three apps!

    Going into Internet Options (which I can't seem to find in Spartan), it shows that every page is set up to open in IE. IOW, if I click on a link in one of the posts here, IE instead of Spartan will be opened and will then take me to where I want to go. How'm I gonna test!?

    Wynona:

    Open a 'Run' box, type: shell:appsfolder then Enter, look for Project Spartan, right click on it and choose 'Create Shortcut', should be on your desktop, rename it to whatever you wish, cut and paste it into your quick launch folder.

    Set Spartan as your default browser in Control Panel/Default Programs/Set your default programs/Project Spartan/Set this program as default/OK

    You have to set "Project Spartan" as default (not "Spartan"). EDIT - Beaten to it by Edwin

    Noticed a few problems with Spartan's reader view. Reader view doesn't work on all web pages. Some times it doesn't show all the post. It caused me to lose my browsing history so I couldn't use the forward/backwards arrows. I have been testing in TenForums.
