Quillan Posted November 19, 2015 Share Posted November 19, 2015 If like me you have been forced into upgrading to Windows 10 you will find that the default browser is now MD Edge which does not have a compatibility mode unlike IE11. IE11 is also shipped with Windows 10 but you have to look for it. IE11 is the last release of IE as we know it and will probably be removed from Windows 10 at some stage.The problem being is that because you don't have the compatibility mode you get all the problems that you had in IE11 before you switched on compatibility mode. The most annoying of all is that you only get a small text box but the good news is you don't get any of the text formatting problems.It's bad enough having the adverts taking up a quarter of the page width but the text box being only a third of the width of the page it leaves a big area of white nothingness right in the middle of the screen which do not look very professional.Google toolbar does not work with Edge so there is no translation plugin although Edge does have a built in spell checker.So now I have three Internet browsers on my PC, IE11 which I no longer use, Edge (which I like) and Google Chrome (because it has a built in translator). Fortunately Edge and Chrome are very similar to use and look at so you don't have to think very hard about how to do things. Of course Chrome still has the problem of a small text box unless you activate compatibility mode.Seeing as Windows 10 is to become a 'forced' update for Windows 7 and above (this means you won't be able to stop the installation, just re-schedule it every time you log in) this is something the forum owners need to sort out.
