WINDOWS 10 Microsoft Edge VS YouTube
« on: September 29, 2017, 01:41:17 AM »
I just love all the latest and greatest fuckups that Microsoft keeps adding to windows...after a hacked update last month, now apparently to watch a YouTube video, you must watch it using Explorer instead of being able to watch it in the regular new browser Microsoft Edge they push on Win10.  This on top of all the other upside down changes they made, might as well just start using/learning a Mac and forget about ever buying another computer using Winshit.  Is anyone else having issues?

oh yeah, I have
I got a "new" computer at xmas but had so much trouble with it i kept using my old windows 8 laptop till it finally gave up the ghost. now im on this 10 laptop that loses my info with yahoo and some other password sites I use. cannot get in to these sites altho it will recognize the emaill addy but refuse the password. then ive requested new passwords, recieved them , try to get in immediately and I still get rejected.
got one site ive been using for 20 years plus that wil tell me that my "session has timed out" everytime i try to get in
 it just plain sucks in my opinion

I don't use edge for anything and only IE for very specific things like printer control panels that require Java.  It's Chrome all the way.

this. disable edge and default to chrome, I do that on 99% of customer machines.

I also forcefully turn off updates. Microsoft 10 updates do nothing but crash machines.

of course, Microsoft and the lagos scammers are my bread and butter.

you always need to run at least 2 browsers. 1 will always fail on some website for some unknown reason.

and just reinstall chrome. something probably hijacked it...

you can also try firefox or opera as a backup if you want to skip the edge/IE options.
