    Is there a way to pin IE to Start or to the Taskbar?

    Then we would not have so many defectors to third party browsers

    (I can't find IE on my Windows 10, did I uninstall it? I can't remember )
    It's under Windows>Accessories, and yes, it does give the option to pin to start or taskbar.

    There's no law against using 3rd party browsers.
    I'm a fairly firm believer in 'Windows stuff works best with Windows' but it's just not the case with their browsers!

    Yeah, browsers have become mini Operating Systems themselves with their apps/add-ons/extensions (like Chrome in Chromebooks)

    I believe Microsoft underestimated the importance of that 'mini-OS development' for a long, long time, kept patching and patching IE for an even longer time, and only very recently had to start from the bottom up. No wonder that Edge is in a catching-up mode.

    I have been playing around in Edge and I like the look and the performance however....

    The company I work for is still on Sharepoint 2010 and Edge currently is not working with it from what we can see. Next many of the clients I service on the side have several web application that will not work correctly in Edge but will in ever other browser (assume will get better in time). Finally all the darn Javascript error's I continue to run into, this might be fixed with MS open sourcing the Javascript engine.

    However I do find this funny...

    Hi there
    This STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID JavaScript is the cause of so much irritation -- Now I can't even get decent Web queries with EXCEL any more without errors appearing as popups making the whole process useless.

    If you do Get external data ==>from web in Excel (excel2007/2010/2016 -- I don't have 2013) you'll get these popups continually appearing - making the thing useless -- and of course no good for running any more in the background.

    I have to use Office 2010 in an XP VM to get the wretched thing to work now. !!!!!!! "Back to the FUTURE -->XP !!! " - still working fine).


    Update for W10

    If you go into developer mode (F12) and set Emulation --Document mode to IE10 and click on persistent (icon at extreme left of the bottom panel when in developer mode then you only get the script error ONCE. Click YES to continue running scripts (or excel will terminate) and then it all works fine - arrows etc for downloading data tables etc.

    The persistent setting saves the emulation across sessions so you don't have to keep re-setting it each time you want to do a query.

Following upgrade to W10 the font size of "Other Bookmarks" has reduced in size. Normal browser sizes are fine, just the Bookmark too small. Any way to increase those without increasing everything else? Thanks.
Finally managed to get 10 up and running today! Yipee! The first thing I did was try Edge and I'm not impressed. So I've switched back to Chrome and it seems to be ok. I went with Chrome mainly for Chrometana. How is Firefox working for people...
