    You asked SaggMaggyPoo if she knew how few people actually change their homepage. I asked what the number was because I believe it a large percentage. If you are referring to people who only use the default browser because the don't know they can use different browsers than the number is going to be small. I'll ask again What is the numbers?
    That doesn't justify you twisting what someone says. I did NOT say .000001% of users change their home page, but yet you decided to put words in my mouth.

    Please refrain from doing that.

    I'd like to know the number of how few people change their homepage. So far I know at least 2 people.
    I've had my home page the same for several years and it seems Edge has figured that one out for me.

    Something I noticed with upgrading vs cleaninstall with 74- upgrading copies all IE's settings including homepage and favorites(bar) to Spartan, a clean install you have to do everything manually. it would be nice if Spartan offered to copy your set up, from a one of your browsers you choose, to it, the first time it's opened, like Chrome.

    I may be missing something in my interpretation here, but I have a clean install of Windows 10 Build 10074. Spartan/Edge is, of course, included. Last night I decided to give it a try to see if there were any improvements.

    I clicked on the three dots at the top right, then Settings. The first item in the list was "Show Favorites Bar", which was turned to off. I switched it on and there, to my amazement, were all my favorites from IE and (I think) Firefox!

    This was the first time I had opened Edge since my clean install. I have never before clicked on those dots, nor noticed them before (which means nothing). I have never tried to list favorites because I only regularly open two or three sites and typing the first two or three letters usually works. If not the first time, at least the second.

    I don't know if Edge will automagically set anything else up because I hardly ever use IE any more; it just has too many problems in Windows 10.

    I tried that before and nothing showed up. After reading your post I just checked again, and as Gomer Pyle said "Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!" They were there too. I guess when I ran wsreset a couple of days ago it repaired Spartan alias EDGE too.

    Thanks for reminding/causing me to check again Wynona.

    So we now know Spartan can be fixed and it's a store app. If you've you seen in another thread it fixed the new Weather & the new People Mail Calendar apps.

    The very first thing I do when starting a new Browser is change the Home Page. I assumed everyone did rather than use some page someone else decided on!
    Same. When I open the browser I want to see this:

    I used to have IE set to open up both Eight and Ten forums plus Bing home page when I clicked the Icon, But my homepage was/is Bing.

    I just checked Spartan. It found all my favorites from IE but not Pale Moon or Fire Fox.
