My most recent Win10 update changed printer settings, removed some printer drivers and went through the motions of reinstalling Office. When I brought up Word, my default layout settings were back to the defaults rather than the way I had set them. Control Panel disappeared from the menu which pops up when you right-click on the Win START button. I don't mind clicking the icon after left clicking the START button to get control panel but why did they need to change? Little annoyances, yes but, annoyances just the same.

Regarding Microsoft EDGE: I use it, but, like you said, only because it came installed on my new machine. I find that it has too many quirks and limitations (like the with Print function, for example). Whenever I have a problem that is solved by using another browser, it's always EDGE that's "causing" the issue, so I don't have confidence in it.

If you want to use a really fast browser, download brave from www.brave.com. It is a stripped down version of Chrome without all the snooping and selling going on.

I am not able to save "my favorites" in edge to install them into another computer and I am forced to install internet explorer favorites.
Is ther a solution that I missed?

Curious what happens when, on a windows 10 machine, you click on "Backup and Restore (Windows 7)" in the "God Mode"?

Thanks for "permission" to finally quit trying to find something useful about Libraries, Lord Gates knows I've tried.

Great article, Bob!
I have been using GodMode on my Win7 PC for several years now (I may have had it on my old WinXP PC) and it's my go-to source for when I want to change any settings. I think it's great and anyone with a bit of geek in them should have it.
I shared it with my oldest Nephew (he has more geek in him than most people I know) just after I discovered it and he said it's awesome.

Thank You...

Thanks for the Godmode tip - just what we needed despite what MS thinks.
When I first went over to W10 I spent ages re-arranging the start menu and getting rid of the great long list of apps (as we now have to call programmes) and had it finally to my liking - but not to Microsoft's liking as the next system update wiped it all out and reset it all. Thank you Microsoft.
I've lost track of all the Windows versions I have suffered through, and still they have not produced a version that will allow me to set my own default location for saved files. Why would I want to put my private files in a folder labelled "my documents" that every passing intruder or hacker will search for critical data?
I really must get on with the move to Linux Mint!!

Until we bought a new Dell computer w/Windows 10 installed back in March, I used Windows XP for 9 yrs. on a Sony computer w/dial-up service from Aol. So using Edge browser is nice and very fast. I was using Opera and Firefox browsers w/Windows XP. And a lot of people couldn't believe I was still using XP. Anyway, I still haven't explored all the features of Edge. I have Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and free Aol using Edge mostly. I'll play with all browsers to maybe see if I delete a few. I recommend Edge, but that is based on about 4 months experience w/Windows 10...and high speed internet.

I have windows 10, think it is good. Was using Edge as the default, 2 weeks ago it went completely inactive, (don't know why and it will not even start up). Went back to google default.
Any ideas?

For anyone using Screencast-O-Matic Pro, please note that if you invoke the GodMode folder, you will not be able to save your screenshots to your computer. It's a known bug and currently, there is no fix outside of not using the GodMode folder.
