    Are you using the RTM or the insider build(10565)?? I'm using the insider build and the save works just fine,, it could be an issue with the build you're using. Edge might still have a bug in that build.

    Either that (using 10240) or I'm using it wrong(said set something wrong).

    I was having problems with Groove's tag reading, but after ripping a few hundred of my CD'S last week and letting WMP set defaults, I let WMP and Groove build their libraries and tag and everything was perfect.

    I figured out, what had happened is, I moved stuff(folders) around with file explorer and not the music players, and totally corrupted the tagging.

    So I reset Groove by uninstalling and reinstalling and reset WMP using troubleshooter, then I tagged first with MediaMonkey, then let both the other two players build their libraries. Now Groove works as a player perfectly.

    Moral of the story, if something isn't working correctly, it's usually somehow my fault

    There must be something wrong with your system, Cliff. I just saved your Avatar as you can see. Try it in IE and see. It may be your File Explorer.

    Edit: Never mind. I see you have it fixed.

    I bet with Edge at Bing images I have to go to the actual image, where as with IE right clicking the thumbnail place holder will get me the actual image. Must have something to do with the sandboxing of WinRT apps and security. Meaning less chances of malware drive-by's.

    PITA but secure...

    Not sure what you mean. I can save a pic in edge anywhere, web page ad pics, here, even thumbnails on Bing pics pages, so you made progress, but not quite there yet I would guess. However, I remember having that problem in a build along the way. Never did figure it out. With the next build it was fine.

    Soon after I installed Windows 10 I received a pop-up from my Norton anti-virus advising me not to use Edge as default because, lacking extensions, it as insecure. When I made Chrome my default it disabled Cortana / Search. I was advised to make IE my default instead, although I am not over-keen on it. That worked, but I still use Chrome because I have a Chromecast and because it has several extensions I like.

    I also use Edge from time to time, to get used to it, but so far I do not see very much that is special about it. I will not be considering it as my default until extensions arrive --- then it will depend on what is available. Edge has some way to go before it matches the hype.

    Extensions are generally written in JavaScript and are only given access to do a few things, mostly involving messing with web pages, but very little access to the underlying computer. For the most part, they are no more dangerous than a web page, and Google or Mozilla makes sure they donít contain actual malware. Or at least no serious malware. Spyware it seems, is sometimes allowed as long as itís mentioned somewhere in the terms and conditions.

    The fact is that tons of browser extensions are spying on you. When you install a browser extension it usually is granted access to every single page you are visiting. So many of these extensions track every single page you are visiting and send that information back to their servers. (We should point out that thereís nothing wrong with LastPass)

    So while people are all worried about advertising tracking people on the websites they visit, many of them are installing browser extensions that are doing the same exact thing. Which is kinda funny. And sad. Mostly sad.

    I wouldn't trust what Norton say's sorry...

    I put Firefox on mine some time back when the Edge was somewhat unstable. I use the Edge now by default.

    Edge is a WinRT Modern Store app much like the immersive IE11 in 8/8.1. It fits MSís plan of OS API architecture with apps running across all devices mainly due to various screen sizes and different processors. They are sand-boxed for safety as well. Another is that apps run in conjunction of one another. That was shown via Charms in 8/8.1 and still exists in 10, but in a different way. WinRt is a completely different animal than other Windows APIs . There are many reasons why MS is changing to it.

    There wonít be plugins and/or extensions in Edge as we have known them in the past for its WinRT API, not the old Windows APIs. e.g. Edge still has a popup blocker, Adobe Flash, and use of a different search engine options as seen in advanced settings. These are all extensions, but not in the old sense of the word. They must all conform to the new MS standards as mentioned previously.

    I use Edge frequently as a tester, but sometimes get frustrated with it and Iíll change to IE for a while. Just as when the Store apps in 8 were introduced they were in their infancy and have come a long way with functionality, so will Edge. Itís what I consider a ďteenage appĒ. Itís actually a good concept in browsing. It just needs some more development just as IE, Chrome, FF, or any other browser did through the years.

    If one still needs plugins for Googleworld or Appleworld then use a different browser. Iíve been moving over to the walled garden concept more and more. Much better functionality in computing and navigating along with safety as time goes on.
