Microsoft Edge, Anyone Else Using?

I would welcome any feedback from other users. Any tips, solutions, stuff you luv or dislike about it and so on. 

Chrome decided to stop working on my Dell laptop of 3 years, I am now using Microsoft Edge 😞 While very grateful for it, it is so different for a Chrome user of many years. Lol, it has certainly pushed my retired brains into exploring and learning 🙂 Thank you!

What model Dell do you have? I have an older Dell Inspiron 5558 but I haven't had any problems using Chrome.

 

Do you have and use Dell Support Assist?

Have you checked with the Dell Community to see if someone can help?

Windows 10, 1909, will be End of Service 05/11/2021. 

Windows 10 - release information | Microsoft Docs

 

My suggestion would be to update soon. Windows 10, 21H1, should be out this month.

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

I mostly use Firefox because, unlike Edge, it supports the uBlock Origin plug in.  See

 

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

 

I don't use Chrome because I don't trust Google, who removed all history of AARP's Politics and Current Events from search results over a month ago.  Google is not the user's friend.

I just had a problem trying to post this with Edge. I had to switch over to Google Chrome and had no problems posting it.

 

I do use Edge most of the time. My suggestion is to look at your Settings and set up Edge the way your want it. One big change I just made to mine was to place all my favorites in folders arranged by alphabet. This makes it a little faster to get to what I want to look at. See image below.

Hi @cat0w thanks for taking the time to respond. I have an Inspiron 15 I purchased in 2018. No to Dell Support and Dell Community. I have not been able to update from Windows 10, the 1909 version. Keep getting error messages and Microsoft Support no help. I am okay with keeping 1909 but wondering if this is not permitted? Also wondering if this older version is the cause of all this. Thanks, Angela 🙂
