They will have to improve Microsoft Edge drastically before I use is. So far, I cannot stand it!

Incredible! They admit how unpopular Edge is and they say this about IE!

Microsoft is losing my respect, especially after breaking Skype as well.

So why don't they just remove it from windows then?
I bet it's still there in the next build!

Article that came out today in The Telegraph newspaper in the UK:

Stop using Internet Explorer, warns Microsoft's own security chief

If that doesn't convince people that the shelf life of IE is now expired, nothing will.

Somehow last week I found my default browser changed to Edge and I could not work with it. JAWS just didn't seem to read anything, though a sighted friend told me I'd got to the website I wanted. He took some time and found something cqalled Edge Deflecter, which seems to have got rid of Edge, thank goodness.

All you would have to do is open the Windows search box, type "default apps" or start typing it until you hear "Default apps, system settings, press enter and tab about 5 times. Then press enter or the spacebar, tab to the browser you want as your default and press enter. Now close Settings with Alt + F4 and you are done.
