Yeah, so great I would've still been on it if Microsoft didn't force me to move! But oh well, these things happen... *shrugs*

Hey Brink, sorry to keep this thread alive even though it's been solved, but I thought I'd ask this here instead of using up more forum room unnecessarily. Well, I've been wondering, why did Microsoft force us to upgrade to Edge rather than simply updating Win 7? From what I can see there isn't much difference between the two operating systems, and those that are different I could see Win 7 easily doing, like the moving graphics on YouTube.

I'm not sure what you mean, Microsoft Edge is optional.

You mean it's like an optional bonus and they really expect us to move onto what operating system?

Microsoft Edge is a browser, not an operating system, Edge is available to run on Windows 10 - it's the default if you choose not to change to another Browser, but also usable on other operating systems

But I thought you had to upgrade to Win 10 in order to use Edge? And isn't support for Win 7 stopping as well?

Only the old Edge. The new replacement Edge is based on Chromium and is available for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and MacOS.

Getting it updated is typically the first thing I do when installing a...
