    Silverlight Question


    New computer with Windows 10 wants to update Silverlight. I am not familiar with this program so I ran a search but the explanation is still "Greek" to me. What is Silverlight and do I need it or need to update it? Thanks.

    Silverlight is a Microsoft program. It is like adobe flash. It is fine to update it.

    If your plan is to use Edge as your default browser, I'd recommend that you do NOT install Silverlight. Edge is not going to support Silverlight. They are not going to play well with each other.

    If you are using IE11 as default, then by all means install Silverlight.

    Thanks for the info. I use Chrome. This Windows 10 stuff is too complicated.
