Sorry if I've posted in the wrong place, and thanks in advance for your help.
computers are dell inspiron laptops, i7 processors, less than a year old, updated to fc.

First a suggestion: is there a single thread for problems with major Windows updates, like the fall creators? It would be a lot easier to search one thread instead of wandering from one to another looking for a solution to a problem.

The issues:
i'm probably missing a setting, but can't seem to find it. prior to update if i browsed the new posts here and found one of interest i could click on it and it would open in a new tab, preserving my location in the new posts listing. now the clicked thread opens in the same window. how can i fix that? I've checked the option to view new processes in a new window but that didn't do it.

My friend has two monitors. he says that he browses his email on one (em client) and wants the link to open in his browser (edge) on the other. seems it worked previously that way, now opens on the same monitor. if he drags the browser window to the other monitor, then closes it, it sometimes re-opens there, sometimes not. How to fix that.

i have also run into times when clicking a link in an email opened an edge window, but it was completely blank, including no control boxes to shut or minimize, and even the icon on the task bar doesn't close it down by right clicking and close or "x". had to revert to task manager and end the process. Anyone know the cause of this and how to fix it?

thanks again.
