for the sake of clarity, it is Windows 10, not Windows 2010.
I suspect you do not have administrator rights; so you will likely have to contact the IT department and have them switch your browser to anything but Edge.
Also, to maybe help you understand the changes between Windows 7 and 10.
You should be able to tap the Windows key and type the name of the program you want to run and hit enter; but that won't help when you click on links; that is where the default browser needs to be changed.
You could try doing that yourself by hitting the Windows key and type default browser, which should put you in settings.

Hello all,

I'm in panic mode. I have been out of my classroom for several weeks over
the summer and went back yesterday to begin preparing for the upcoming

Windows 2007 and IE was what I was using, but upon booting up I discovered
that all computers had been upgraded to Windows 2010 and Edge. While JAWS
did come up, it did not start announcing things as usual, so I didn't know
the log in screen was up, and after much tabbing and entering, eventually
got logged in. When I tried opening a program that used the internet, I
again could not get logged in because it wouldn't take my password. Usually
I hear *****when typing in the password field, but only heard the exact keys
I was typing. I couldn't get in anywhere other than my school email, which
is now Outlook 2016 instead of 2013. Again, here all configurations are

I have no idea how to even begin getting my setup functional for me again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
