If you're on a laptop unplugged and you need as much uptime as possible, edge will give you quite a bit more time over other browsers, it's become my favorite browser after a long long run on chrome;
Some of us wound up with cut and paste issues after an update to windows 10, some websites would give us code when we copied text.
That issue is now solved with the fall version of the creators update, if you're having the issue, even if you already have the creators update, get the fall release, your problems should be solved.
The update takes quite a bit of time once the download is complete
Get the update here
The solution was found on the Microsoft discussion board, if you'd like to see that discussion, , this is it
I never use the list in start anymore, using the keyboard is easier for me
Anyway, here's a few work arounds till windows puts it back, which I'm betting they will
Hit the windows key, type the letter c, that should bring up control panel right off, if not continue spelling it till the applet appears, should be just one or two letters.
Just hit enter, I think once you do this a few times it will become something you prefer over finding it in the start menu
Hit the windows key, type till the control panel icon comes up, right click, hit
pin to task bar, then you save a step
No need hitting the windows key at all, it’s right there in the tray all the time.
I tried right clicking and pinning to start menu, but that didn’t seem to do anything, pinning to task bar was my next choice, now it seems the best choice.
Last choice for me would be creating a keyboard shortcut;
Right click on the desktop, hit shortcut, the target believe it or not is;
Create the shortcut, then right click it, hit properties and make your keyboard shortcut with any letter you want.
I’d go with the task bar option
I hope that helps, good luck!
Previous versions of windows, changing file extensions was simple, just rename with your .dot extension after deleting the original extension.
That feature's hidden by default in 10, but in-hiding it is simple;
Open any file, hit "view" on the top left, then check the "file extensions" box on the far right, done.

When using edge, if you want to go to one of your favorite sites, rather then go to the mouse, you'll find it more convenient and faster hinting control=L
In Edge, and probably other browsers, not only does control+L open the address bar, it also presents a short list of your most visited sites, you can just use your arrow key to get to the site you're looking for, and hit enter.
If the site you want to go to isn't on that list, you can usually type the first letter of the site, and if you've visited it before, it should come up in that list, for instance, if you visit quora once in a while, and want to go there, rather then going into favorites, just hit control+L then type the letter Q and quora should present itself, hit enter, bam.
