    You provide "solutions" that add steps to repetitive situations. And you call this progress? For instance, the question mark key requires the use of a shift key -- why take away a dedicated search box wherein I don't HAVE to use a shift-key combination before every search I'll ever do? That is counter-productive. It doesn't make anything "easier" at all -- it makes life more difficult, instead.
    What part of "if you use the search keyboard shortcut, it automatically adds the question mark for you" didn't you get?

    If you're using a keyboard only, which you claim to be doing, you have to enter a keyboard shortcut in FF to get to the search box, that's ctrl+e, which is the same in Windows 10, and it automatically puts the ? in to your search. No shift key, no extra function, it works *EXACTLY* the same way with the *EXACT* same number of steps or key presses.

    As for complaining, all I did was ask if some very simple features that Windows 7 and Windows 8 removed from earlier versions of Windows might have been restored in Windows 10. And along with answers of "no," you guys have taken the extra step to say the removal of these features have "improved" Windows, and then you have beaten me down as being a miscreant. If you're going to whine about "complainers," you might look at how you conduct your own posting, because you're really just reaping what you sow.
    I didn't say anything about "improved". And I didn't say you only wanted to complain, I said I didn't know which one you were, but if you're serious about making it work the way you want, it can be done... but you seem unwilling to even try.

    Well, the only problem with that is the same problem -- the Start Menu won't run a FILE, not even a "batch" file.
    Then add it to your startup items. Or stick it on your desktop.
