    So I guess the UK's Aluminium IS the correct word(the Germans call it that too), and not Aluminum(the way I say it, except for foil, that's Tin Foil )..
    We call it Tin Foil too despite there being no Tin in it.

    And Tin Foil used to be made of Tin (Sn) which proved to be not too good for health.

    Nobody knows who discovered aluminium. It was certainly around as early as Roman times, and aluminium plates etc. were more prized than gold in those days. It is of course the most abundant metal in the Earth's core.

    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    It'll eventually become the Fall Creators Update.

    One thing that comes to mind . . . when a Build is especially bad, everyone stays on topic, discussing the various bugs and "how bad this Build is". However, let a significant time elapse between Builds, especially if all the bugs have been cussed and re-cussed ad nauseum, things tend to drift off topic and a lot of "We need a new Build" statements arise.

    The next phase happens when a Build is, well not perfect, but much, much better than the last one, and the bugs seem to be few and far between. You'll then find we have nothing much to talk about, and once again, things drift off topic. As we've seen in Build 16281, things drifted rather quickly. I'd judge this Build a success.

    And now . . .

    QUESTION #2 - I'm also using Edge. When I misspell a word, I get the red squiggly line underneath, which is to be expected. In all other apps, when I double click the word, then right click on it, I get a spelling hint. However, in Edge, I get:

    Read Aloud
    Select All
    Cut
    Copy
    Paste.

    If I right click on the word, I get:
    Read Aloud
    Select All
    Paste.

    Does this happen to any of you?

    Aluminium was definitely NOT around in roman times, it is not present on this planet naturally in metallic form, as the smelting temperature is high. Unless the romans invented the arc furnace of course.
    Getting back to this new build, mine is ok as were the last two, just the other day.
    With this high frequency of builds, I doubt if anybody has had the time to have more than a passing glance.
    I am with the switch it off clan, not just to save electricity, but the fire risk plummets when an appliance is switched off at the wall.

    Works for me, right clicking any misspelled words. Notice that you should not select (double click) the word, just right click it.
