UFOs, new tech, it all goes in here. Have you tried switching it off and back on ?

Even the improved Edge browser seems acceptable - so far.

Well I've been using Windows 10 for about three months now.
Because it came pre-installed with new pc ... pretty good and fast too.
But Edge does not work for me.
I cannot for the life of me figure out why but if I use it it might be okay for a few seconds or half an hour but it crashes the system.
Screen goes black sometimes comes back on but more often than not doesn't so my simple solution is .... don't use it.

Just thought I'd give edge a go again and see if time has healed it through updates etc but nope.
Lasted three or four minutes then the pc crashed.
This is the only problem I've had with Windows 10 which on the whole I'm quite impressed with I have to admit.
Anyone else have this problem or know of it?
It's not important as I say I just avoid using it I'm just curious.

Speaking of which, I get along just fine with Waterfox. 4 tabs open, a few add-ons, a few extensions and it's chugging away using 390.MB
I've found that having 8Gig RAM does help though. Total memory in use= 23%, so not exactly frugal.

Yes, I've changed my view of Edge, it's a bit iffy - I'm back with Firefox and Chrome.

I still like Windows 10 though - best iteration since XP.

I've just gone back to Windows 8.1. I've had terrible connection problems with W 10, and tried lots of patches etc, and nothing seemed to fix it. It's now working perfectly.

By the way can anyone advise how to get my files back from Asus web storage? Pretty please :wubwub:

Thank you for this BFF. I looked high and low on the web storage page itself, and there was nothing. :cuppaT:
