    The bleeding Edge browser doesn't seem to like that though, so it cycles through my recent history.

    I think this issue is of a recent vintage, so with time it should improve (after MS actually includes History on the DotDotDot pane.

    Right now I use Google as my start page for Edge and I use it as my secondary in WIn10. It's, for me, making nice progress and I like to see how it's going to be in the upcoming builds.

    Me too. I also set it on Spartan/Edge but when I just logged in it went to Bing (or MSN, can't remember) even though it is definitely set to open to Ten Forums.

    I'd prefer a home page that I will actually use (I have a weather page on W8.1) to a search engine.

    I had a look at this Roy (what a crazy way to find the options). Unfortunately the settings I have there (automatically go to a new tab when opened and use Ten Forums as my home page) aren't working for me in Spartan. But I'm having a pretty frustrating time with Spartan anyway. Maybe I'll have to do a fresh install and see if it's any better.

    Same here, but it does seem strange that it doesn't default to load your favorites. But then if you were to add a new browser that wouldn't automatically pick up your favorites either, so the fact that Spartan does this is a bonus I guess.

    Firefox does. I just clean reinstalled(not repair install to avoid cruft) 10074 to clean-up my "experiments" such as theming and playing around with drivers This time I went with Firefox instead of Chrome as my default browser. I haven't used in in months and that was in Debian 7 Wheezy. Firefox ask if I wanted to import from IE I said yes as a base for my favorites and cookies, then I sync'd and got my add-ons from before, now I have as perfectly updated back up browser(only had to download Flash Player). Chrome is quicker, but FF is safer with the Self Destructing Cookies add-on.

    I've had this before, but not yet on Win10, it's malware. Google it.
