    A few Brief Questions about W10


    1. There is a search bar at the bottom of my computer. It says search the web and windows.......I don't want it there. How do I get rid of it ?

    2. What is box ? I clicked it on but it won't open.....should I delete it ?

    I unpinned the games, groove music, sports, movies, food and flipboard. Are there any others I should get rid of ?
    How come some of them will go away after I unpin them and some don't ?
    How come I can delete some and not others ?
    What is Pinger ?

    3. I unpinned the file explorer from the bottom of the taskbar and left it on the start menu.....but it won't go away. Any idea why ?

    Not exactly sure what you're taking about, maybe it's the task view button. The task view resembles a small box it's on the left side of the taskbar, same side as the search box.

    I believe that's a fixed item in the start menu and can't be deleted.

    Check the tutorials, Brink has done a fine job and a lot of questions can be answered from them.

    #3, check Settings>Personalization>Start then click on "Choose which folders appear on Start" This gives a choice of 10 folders to either have appear or not on Start.

    Sorry my earlier response for question 3 was incorrect
