Are they paying you enough to put up with that bullshit?

So I go into Outlook's settings and lo and behold: it claims to be the default email program. But hey, can't hurt to double check, I suppose? So I click the button labeled "Default Programs..." and am treated to a dialog box. "To change your default apps, go to Settings > Apps > Default apps." Awesome.
although unfortunate, the logic is pretty simple. Viruses and shovelware will hijack your default apps and pretend to be what you were expecting, so Windoes now forbids any app from changing the defaults without user intervention.

So there needs to be a button there to convey that information. That makes sense, I guess.

Computer is appreciably slower than with Win7, too, BTW. Not quite what I would expect from "literally like from Cheetah to Puma to Jaguar to Panther to Tiger to Lion". Even my screensaver (Pixelcity) went from smooth to choppy. This is with a clean install, mind you.

Edge browser sucks too, by the way.

RE: Every fucking time, without fail...
I call PEBCAK. Perhaps the problem is that you are not following the established simple logic.

If you've been paying attention, you'll know that viruses and shovelware will hijack your default apps and pretend to be what you were expecting, so Windoes intervenes automagically on your behalf.

It's perfectly simple, you see:

Quote:Windoes is so great -- and it's really great, and I've seen a lot of software, and I know great, believe me -- perhaps due to its semi-annual updates that completely -- and humbly -- refresh all of the software, that it is unfairly victimized with viruses and shovelware. Sad. It's natural that the OS disable features of other Microsoft software without notice or indication that it has done so. OK?


That's why you might think Edge sucks.

Probably, because one of the "features" of this update appears to be slowing a perfectly workable machine down to a crawling mess.

You mean the same way Spotlight slowed down computers updated to Tiger until it finished indexing?
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

So, in addition to trackpads still working like shit on Windows after god knows how many years, my trackpad settings now revert to their defaults (most annoyingly, wiping out two-finger right-click) whenever my Thinkpad has been plugged into its docking station.

Congratulations, Microsoft. I don’t see how you could fuck that one up, but you did.

Microsoft Edge is currently using 75% CPU (quad core i7) and 3.5GB RAM because I am reading my newspaper and have opened about twenty articles in tabs. Awesome. Clearly Apple can learn a thing or two from Microsoft when it comes to software development!

Isn’t Microsoft working on a Chromium based browser to replace Edge?

I believe that they are, but I don't have any reason to believe that that will mean that it consumes fewer resources.
