    I just re-install the OS! Been doing it every day lately, sometimes twice a day!
    Why don't you try a system refresh first.

    Takes longer.
    And, I always change my mind about little details every time.

    Yes, sort of. Sometimes it doesn't always work, but later on, it may . . . First try didn't work on sear.ch, but later on, MB took the rest of it out.
    Sometimes you have to find and kill the process, then turn the service off, then uninstall, then go to the registry and RIP that damn things backbone out, then go to App Data and cut it's legs off.. But make sure your offline first.

    Toolbars need to be deprecated... Microsoft can deprecate desktop gadgets which most people seemed to like, you would think Toolbars would have been deprecated too.

    I don't think I've ever heard of anyone in the last 15 years who has ever wanted or liked Toolbars

    You have now! I liked Google Toolbar, mainly for its highlighter feature. I would still like to find something that did that.

    Ummm the find feature(Ctrl+F)in Internet Explorer If you mean highlighting a word and sentences your looking for on a page..

    By the way I used the Bing Toolbar on my Windows 7 machine for the Weather and Email warning feature, plus highlight and search feature(the other stuff I turned off). On Windows 8 and 10 I don't need it.

    Toolbars were ok for their time, but tech marches on. The Notification feature in 8 and 10 are great especially in 10 taking it further. Hoping Cortana via Bing performs this: Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 Search Button in the non-mobile edition. e.g. In reading the posts here, lets say I want to brush up on what's new with the Google Toolbar. I simply highlight it...

    Simply tap the Cortana search icon to search Bing for relevant results.

    What could be faster and easier?

    Yup Gipsie That's what I mean by I don't need the Bing toolbar on the newer OS's. Many many useful things are included and embedded(we just have to find them ourselves because Microsoft has gotten a bit lazy providing thorough documentation/Help).

    Yes, I knew that's what you meant by stating you use it in 7. Used 7 extensively myself. A good, stable OS, but quite outdated now IMO.

    Yes, many useful features added with every OS. Not sure that MS is getting lazy, though. The Help files just aren't embedded in the OS any longer. Plenty of help on their site. There's also Modern Store apps also. Here's one on my Lumia:

    Thing is a lot of users simply choose not to use Modern Store apps.

    On the other hand, I think MS left out one of the most useful features of 8.1 not included in 10 > Charms bar, save the hamburger menu. Not quite the same. Just one of the major deciding factors why I won't be using 10 as my main OS. So far, anyway.

    Yeah I like the charms bar too. It's practical for even something so simple as seeing the time and date, because the one in system tray is so small, and I use my HDTV as a Display and sit about a meter away. And basic controls are larger(sound, internet access, power...etc.)
