    My apologies in advance for any offence taken by the following comment but,
    Edge is still a useless, nonfunctional toy!

    No hard feelings, at least you have a favorite browser. Me? I'm still undecided

    FWIW Favorite browsers in this order here are :

    1.Chrome

    2. Fire Fox

    3. IE 11

    4. Edge

    OTOH ...You can stream Netflix 1080p in IE 11 or Edge, not sure about F/F and definitely not Chrome

    note : aside from 1080p Netflix browsers 3 and for 4 are mostly only good for downloading a better browser like 1 and 2 :)

    Lots of people are complaining about clean installing being a problem since 14251 on MDL. The workaround is to make an ISO with winre.wim instead of install.wim.

    I've done a clean install with winre.wim and it works fine - I didn't try the install.wim as it was known not to work (perhaps it sometimes does but I could see no point in testing it).
    Here is my experience using Kari's(?) ESD to ISO tool.

    1. Made an ISO using the .wim method, 1st option on tool.

    2. Tried to use DISKPART with the 14257 DVD but their was no option to get a Command Prompt.

    3. Used 11102 to use DISKPART to clean my 1st drive.

    4. Now the interesting bit: I booted from the 14257 DVD. A "DOS" window came up and said something about source not being found but then continued to install.

    5. During one of the restarts a "DOS" window came up and said something about source not being found but then continued to install.

    6. Install completed and 14275 seems to be working fine.

    Should I post this in a new thread?

    Apache Open Office 4.1.2 ( free ) is decent and has all the usual office stu Yff and spread sheets and generally plays nice with MS Word and MS office ,One Drive or Google Docs
    Yeah, but we both have subscriptions to Office 365 2016 for business. In my case, my subscription is free until November of 2016 and will cover five computers and five tablets. Still, it's good to have the free ones that will play nicely together. I don't know what Joanne has, since there are multiple subscription types to Office.

    I don't know about Skype and O.O. but there is probably an Open Office Wiki there anyway .....One drive is to slow ......I prefer Google DOCS although I did triple my ISP speed Monday for the new 4K 55" Sony XBR TV next to me in here for 4 K HDR Netflix ,You tube and Amazon Prime video ................so maybe it's faster now .:shrug:
    Skype for Business and OneDrive for Business come with Office for Business. Both have more features than I understand, thus, the reasoning behind wanting a user guide for them. I get a whole terabyte of space with Office 365 (home or business), so I really don't need any other storage. It's also pretty fast.

    I use Open Office on the W10 test builds and all 4 W 10 PC's here with MS Word on them even though I have MS Office 2010 on the other NTFS partition on *this box I use that now and then also .
    OTOH MS Office is more refined and polished than Open Office but O. O. works also.

    Reasoning as above for not using anything other than what I have.
