Windows 10: Users transferred from Windows 7 to Windows 10 + Internet Explorer

    Users transferred from Windows 7 to Windows 10 + Internet Explorer


    1. With Windows 7, I had four registered users, each appearing on the initial opening screen with individual logos/pictures. Each user had their own profile with their own internet site favourites appearing below the Star logo and/or as part of the Favourites tab on Google.

    The Windows 10 upgrade shows only the first user's profile as her's is the earliest name in the alphabet. While the other users are listed in the C drive under "Users", how do I get the other 3 users' profiles to appear on the first screen?

    Also in Windows 10, where is the "Switch user" button?

    2. While all the documents, pictures, favourites for each user have been transferred to Windows 10, they are in the C drive under "Users" but not in the File Explorer. How do I get them into the File Explorer?

    3. I cannot see an Internet Explorer icon anywhere as I want to set up Google (not Google Chrome) as the default search engine. How do I do this ?

    4. Under Windows 10, I opened the BBC Sports website and tried to add it to the Favourites by right clicking. However the Settings cog does not appear and therefore the Internet option to set Google as the default does not appear either. How to fix ?

    Thanks in anticipation of all the assistance out there but be gentle with your replies as I am extremely non computer or IT literate.

    IE


    I also prefer IE to Edge, although I almost always use Firefox. Simply search your C drive for "iexplor", and you will find it. Drag it to the desktop...
