Your top 5 picks. Sites that look GREAT in Microsoft Edge

Question: Your top 5 picks. Sites that look GREAT in Microsoft Edge

I loaded up the latest build of Microsoft Windows and decided to check out Microsoft Edge to see just how much better it is in this build (10586) Man, Edge is FAST! Pages load up as if they were already there. Not all but many did. List your top five sites. Here are mine:
1. USAToday
2. NeoWin
3. StumbleUpon
4. Bing
5. Gettyimages
Honorable Mention: The Verge

Preferred Solution: Your top 5 picks. Sites that look GREAT in Microsoft Edge

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a bit of a problem, in the Edge address bar are top sites that you have visited. I need to know how to turn that feature off for privacy reasons. Sure its helpful and saves you typing if you go to that particular website very often but what if you let someone use your computer and they see some of the websites you visit???

Answer:Microsoft Edge Top Sites

Turn on Guest Account, and then all you have to do is log out, then log Guest in, and whatever they do, won't affect your machine. This is the securest way.

When I enter the username and password the log in won't go through. I don't get an error message that the login failed, it just goes back to the page as if the login didn't happen. This is happening for all the web sites I have tried.

When I use Firefox I can log on just fine.

Hello.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro, 64 Bit, and the "Top Sites" on the Startup page seems to have disappeared. I don't remember installing any software or drivers lately.

Any suggestions as to how to get the "Top Sites" back will be appreciated.

Thank you again.

Answer:Microsoft Edge: Top Sites Have Disappeared

Open Edge > top right, click the 3 dots icon > select Settings > under Open With, select New tab page > under Open new tab with, click the pointer and select Top sites or Top sites and suggested content.
That's it.
See if that works now.
If still problematic, and if you have CCleaner, open CCleaner, left side under Windows, make sure top 6 boxes are checked, then run CCleaner.

After that, check if top sites are back.

Does anyone know how to fix Microsoft Edge for PC? Every time I set top sites for the new tab page and close Edge it resets back to the factory top sites. What could be causing my settings to not save?

Answer:Microsoft Edge keeps forgetting my top sites

Here you can see I what my top sites start out as then in the next picture I add a set of random sites. In the last picture I closed and opened edge right back up and the changes I made are all gone. I've tried hitting the pin button in the corner of the top sites to make sure they stay and it makes no difference. No idea why my computer is doing this as this is a fresh factory reset.

Hi, I just have a question, and i am curious if this is happening with others as well.
When i open Microsoft Edge, i do not get the most visited sites anymore, i only get the news links.
But if i start a new tab, i get both, the most visited sites and the news?
Any ideas why would this be happening? and how can i fix it?
I want to be able to see the most visited sites on my first page when i open Edge.
Thanks

Answer:Microsoft Edge is not showing most visites sites on my homepage, any ideas?

Top right of the page of the home page, there is an icon to change what it shows.

Hello. I've posted in the potential maleware section, but I have run Hijackthis.

My computer has not been operating irregularly, but the read-out of AVG is concerning in that it picks up "0/28" rootkits, but officially marks none as "infected." Running TDSS Killer on the advice of a Best Buy Geek Squad associate has also brought up nothing. I am determined to know whether or not this is clean. Updating this: I've also downloaded, installed, and run Malwarebytes. The scan there also turned up clean. Am I going crazy?

I did look to see if this has been posted elsewhere, but I can not find it so..Can I recommend Corrine's Security Garden to everyone, as this is a great place for information on security, which means that she often goes into details that are not always here. I want also to recommed Donna's securityflash, Donna is highly respected by MVPs and her security flash always full of interesting information. Lastly Calander of Updates, which does exaclty that keeps you up to date about security issues. If you use these in conjunction with our forum, you'll be suprised about how informed you are about things

Answer:Great security sites

Thank you for including Security Garden in your list, Seti. I do my best to emulate the SMART principles that Joe Knape described in this blog post today: Get SMART About Your Security Awareness Program.

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

Hi

I am new to this forum. I am having a major issues with my pc. First its all started when the malware paytime.exe attacked my pc. It turned off my firewall(SP2 Firewall), real-time virus scanner(Trend microoffice client,not using its firewall, provided by my service provider). With the help of hijackthis, spybot and ewido and also the interent , able to delete paytime.exe and its related files.
To this I entered in safe mode.

Now I am able to control my firewall. Thats the only success BUT when I click nvmixer.exe in my taskbar, it shows visual C++ runtime error and my virus scanner is saying that officescan client has not started. So in control panel I entered in administrative tools and tried manually to start real time scan process but I failed again. It shows cannot start this process in safe mode.The same thing is repeated for other processes like error reporting etc. I am booting in normal mode only but its showing cant run in safe mode.

For runtime error I tried to download visual runtime files from support.microsoft, I failed to do so. My browser doesnt open sites of microsoft. When I typed support.microsoft.com, Page cannot display error is coming. I even disabled my firewall still it doesnt works.

Could you tell me how to make my process start again? And is there any program that will tell me about missing dlls if any(presently there are no dialogs of missing dlls). And about my browser security settings?

I also present you the log of the hijackthis.

Answer:Cant able to run virus scanner, open microsoft sites(support sites) in any browser

Sometimes when viruses are cleaned out the process damages system files etc too. I'd suggest starting with a sfc and then if no go run a 'repair' (this installs os over itself and retains data but you'll have to re-do updates).

My computer has recently been hit (last 24 hours) with something which is disabling all of my microsoft sites/programs and access to antivirus sites .

Going back 24 hours i had another virus which made my computer really slow redirected sites and posted 3 porn links on my desktop. After this i did a non destructive system recovery (after which i got an ntdlr is compressed message but i fixed it). As soon as i had got the computer running back to normal i installed sp2 as my computer originally came with sp1 and windows 2003 xp home edition.

when i got back on the internet i found my problem and i couldnt sign into msn messenger or access antivirus sites. I have tried these programs :Ad-Aware spybot search , vundo fix , super anti spyware and malware bytes anti spyware.

i have also booted my pc into safe mode and used sdfix. And i have used atf cleaner and cc cleaner to delete cookies and temp files and i have cleared my cache.

Another note i have tried to run Combofix from the desktop but it just says its been compromised and i need to download a new copy and then deletes its self (i have downloaded new copies)

I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the OS, XP Professional SP2, and still obtain the same results. I have tried it without selected programs installed. I have had the hardware and software environment checked by an ex-employee of Microsoft. He couldn't find anything wrong, except IE can't raise any sites. I live in Huntsville, AL and in a rural setting without any profound radiation sources. None of my neighbors have this problem. I figured that I must be doing something during setup or configuration (like turning off the wrong service), so I got a friend to install XP the last time. Nope. I forgot about the problem for a few months because it doesn't really bother me. I can download from the Microsoft sites with Firefox; Microsoft provides a plugin for that. It is the mystery that bothers me. Any theories welcome. I don't have this problem on my other Windows computer, just my main one. I don't use IE on my Mac.Any information needed beyond what I given?

idk how much info to give since this is work related, they're on a server, they all use xp pro machines wit 2gb of ram, logging onto server no prob but to start the Great Plains program itself takes like 3-4 mins, is there a way to make it go faster?

Answer:Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains

No. Since it is running off the server there is no way to make it load faster on the client machines. I would wager to guess that the server is trying to load it on several machines at once, and then again on several more as the program is not being called all at the same time to all the machines at once.

So the server has to process each request and then fill it.

I fear to update Vista anymore, because there's always a new trouble with each update. First, the network icon for dial-up went off and dial-up showed not connected after SP2 installation, then bluetooth discovery went dead, after some time whole network center was behaving strangely and finally, week or two before, most strange thing started to happen after a bigger update rollup - a directory or directory link named A or B was created hidden on the system drive, which basically lead to the drive itself, but after trying to remove the directory, explorer hung and eventually went dead- hard reset needed. After a restart or in the safe mode, directory is empty and can be deleted. After some time again, it's back, causing another hang-up. Spybot found nothing, updated ESET Smart Security is always on and found nothing, internet was disconnected, if it's a virus or malware, it's pretty unknown. Enough for my nerves- I did a complete Vista reinstall, this time I also installed Ubuntu just to have at least one reliable system ready.
Well, everything went ok, after installing SP2 from offline package network icon worked ok, bluetooth and wifi as well. My happiness didn't last long indeed- after installing remaining post-SP2 updates, annoying A and B directories appeared again. Any help, or even a confirmation of the same problem would be welcome. Thanx!

hi there, i have been experiencing a problem in my computer. i cant open any antivirus sites or microsoft sites . i scanned with malwarebytes and removed some malwares but i still cannot open these sites . need help

Answer:cannot open any antivirus sites and microsoft sites

Welcome, are you able to run these. Try safe mode with networking or copy them to a flash drive from another computer and run off that if they will not download normally.

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
Flush DNSReport IE Proxy SettingsReset IE Proxy SettingsReport FF Proxy SettingsReset FF Proxy SettingsList content of HostsList IP configurationList Winsock EntriesList last 10 Event Viewer logList Installed ProgramsList Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

I have been using Microsoft Security Essentials on Windows 7 Ultimate and it have proven to me over many tests that it can hold its own against all the rest. I'm not saying it is better or worse but I have felt more confident each day I use it.

Trust me when I say I have tested it to the maximum in trying to comprimise my HD by downloading the really bad stuff. Each time it has stopped whatever came from outside dead in its tracks. Told me in easy to understand terms what MSE was doing and what I had to do to help. Many times I had to reboot because the virus was in memory and or hiding on my HD and couldn't be deleted while Win7 was running.

I'm sure many of you will burn me at the stake for saying that I like MSE. Let it go. I'm not telling you to change. I'm just making a statement that I believe is true.

I'd like to hear from folks that have more knowledge than I about how MSE works differently and uses less overhead to do it.

Answer:Microsoft Security Essentials is a great program!

MSE is a great program and has passed all my tests i have done on it i feel safe when i download content from the web.

I've found two sites (so far) that have scrolling compatibility issues with Edge. Musician's Friend: Musical Instruments Store is one and the other is the Cakewalk/Sonar forum http://forum.cakewalk.com/default.aspx

In either site, I can scroll (vertically) through front pages without problems. But, when I get into individual threads, for example, and try to scroll though them, either scrolling slows down to very slow or stops.

It would seem to be a setting in Edge, as I have another desktop (my recording studio backup system) with the same version of Win 10 (Pro 64 bit) and it does not do it in that system.

I've reset, to default, all the settings I could find in Edge.

Hey gang,

I installed Windows 10 a couple of days ago and really like it so far. I have been trying out the new MS Edge browser. I noticed up towards the top in Top Sites it would populate with websites I visit frequently. Kind of like it did in IE previously when one would click on a new tab and it would show the top frequented sites. Makes it easy to return to them.

So this afternoon I noticed in Edge, suddenly the top sites field was blank all the way across.
Any idea why this would have blanked out? I did not do any clearing out of anything...

Thanks for any tips,

Answer:Edge - Top Sites wiped out ( blank) ?

Well after a reboot and opening Edge up again, those lists are populated again just as they were.

Strange, but at least they are back now.

I am having a terrible time trying to get google.com and my gmail hosted web-mail to load at a normal speed or to even load at all. I have tried both Edge and IE. I am trying to stick with these two to take full advantage of the new features in Edge. I am also having delayed loading of other sites, like this one - it takes 10-15 seconds to get the body of the site loaded, otherwise it is just the top "bar" that loads and then just hangs with the blue background only.

What could be the problem? Is anyone else having this issue? Same problem with my SP3. I am very frustrated.

Just curious if this is unique to me or if others see this, and/or if it is a known bug.

I oftentimes will use the top sites list to click on a webpage, I click on a new tab and that list is populated with the 8 most used sites I go to. Oftentimes, I will click on a new tab and suddenly the list is totally blank. I can close Edge out, reopen it, and it is populated once again.

Does not appear to be any rhyme or reason to it, seems to be totally random when it happens. And when it does, only way to get them back is to close Edge out and reopen it.

Why Edge doesn?t open any Google www-sites? I am able to open the same Google-sites with any other browsers.

Answer:Why Edge doesn┤t open any Google www-sites?

Welcome to the TenForums @kaulahuivi

I would power down router, count to 20, power up.

I would head to chrome. Clear all browsing history, cache, temporary files etc from the beginning of time.
Then go advance options, right at the bottom, reset the browser.
Test.

There is a network reset in windows settings. Open Network and Internet, right at the bottom, right panel. You will need to reenter wireless passwords.

If that process fails, in command prompt(Admin)
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
Reboot
Test

If you still can't get Google sites, ensure your data is backed up and create a restore point.

Head to MalwareBytes.com and download malwarebytes. Start malwarebytes, check that rootkit option is enabled, run a scan. If that finds something, clean, reboot and rerun scan.

If that finds nothing you could also try HitmanPro from hitmanpro.com.

My impression of Edge is that it is easily hijacked by malicious sites. You know what I am talking about: it's the sites that say your computer is infected and you need to call some number, and Edge never lets you stop the popups to get out of the site (despite the Block Popups setting being on!), forcing you to use the Task Manager to put the ugliness fully down. And then unless you know to hold the Ctrl button down, re-starting the Edge leaves you right where you left off in reloading the malicious site.

Describing a browser as "lightweight" can be either a compliment or a major criticism. I'm going for the latter on Edge.

Yes I think you are correct. I had never had a problem with one of those pop ups til this week. I click on a link in facebook and got infected by malware. Windows defender was able to remove it quite quickly however but not without going into safe mode. Chrome would always block those when I was using it.

Hi,
I'm loving the workflow and appearance of Edge, but for the life of me, I don't know why Edge doesn't work properly with two MS sites I use most extensively while online - Bing.com and outlook.com. outlook.com is clunky, definitely not a fluid experience, while bing.com takes ages to fully load, especially the background picture which is kind of a 'made my day moment' when i sip my morning coffee.

Since I don't like when my computer automatically wakes from hibernation when I open the lid, I changed the lid close behavior to "Do Nothing" in the power (mis)manager.  Which means that I have to always remember to sleep it or hibernate it manually when I close the lid and leave it for a few hours or minutes or whatever the case may be. It worked. It worked like 6 or 7 times, and then it started turning itself on again when I would open the lid.  So I re-booted.  It started to work again as it had.  Waiting for me to un-sleep it, or un-hibernate it. Until that 6th, 7th, or 8th time, when it again started waking itself on lid open.  Then I re-booted again. Is this part of the credo that "we couldn't think of a usage scenario where you'd want to open the computer and not use it?" Are you just trying to make me tacitly agree to your new default, that my computer should turn on when I open the lid?  That my computer should actually be on when I don't really want it to be on? And, seriously, can you imagine the futility of making a support call for this?  And can you imagine the massive waste of time it would be? Just update the drivers to make the thing work the way it should.

Answer:Microsoft Edge on or off?

Weird.
I would like to know what causes that too.
I have Ccleaner and I also do not use Edge, and I don't have Ccleaner asking me to turn off Edge.

Question: Microsoft Edge

Any ideas how to make Microsoft Edge good? I ve tried to use it but it keeps freezing up on my HP Envy x360 Convertible. I want to use it but cant deal with the freezing and its a bit lagging. Help please. Also what add-ons area good to run with Edge?

Answer:Microsoft Edge

I find Edge is running great on my HP, but try surfing on IE11, now that has become a piece of crap! I swear MS is sabotaging it so users are forced to use Edge.. its SOOOOOOO bad!!! constant crashes, freezing, slowness and other crap I can't think of.. it used to be so good but now I'm forced to use *swollows* GOOGLE *threw up a bit in my mouth* BUT Edge isn't bad but I do get occasionally some freezing, my moneys on the WEB DEVs are coding these websites to work favorably on chrome and android and IOS, and not Windows... that's why we get the intermittently hang ups and freezes and whatnot... the only thing I can suggest is using adblock and don't use to many add ons as that will slow your surfing a bit...

IF MICROSOFT EDGE IS THE BEST WHY DO THEY WANT YOU TO MAKE IT YOUR DEFAULT BROSER?

Answer:// about microsoft edge, was this the old e

Hi, Curently they have two web browser products (IE and Edge). They want users to use newer product to simplify and save support cost as any business. You can use other browser as default. I use 3 browsers depending on which machine I logon but around  80% Firefox, 15% IE and 5% Edge. I don't know when but one day they may announce to stop one and only support one (can be IE, depending on users reactions / acceptances). Regards.

There isn't one. At least not like in Internet Explorer. There is the Settings sidebar, which opens when you click the 3 dots (...) and you can pin it to the side if you want. There's also a setting in there for the Favorites bar, but there is no traditional Menu.

The solution for Edge no longer saving URL's (and files) in the new Favorites folder, sorting or managing the ones that are already in the Favorites list, or manually managing the Favorites moved the ESE database is, in my opinion and from experience, - USE A DIFFERENT BROWSER. Problem solved, no more headaches, no more frustration, no more lost time, no more lost Favorites.

Did it for just for fun. Not a fan of the new logo because it's... clunky to me. Tried working on a lighter font and I personally like it better.
The point of this is merely for aesthetics. I know there are people who think that this logo makes people associate it with Internet Explorer, but that isn't the point.

Microsoft Edge is the rebranding / reworked IE for Win/10 but . . .




Users and companies that cannot load their websites or apps because of the new engine -- can always turn back to Internet Explorer, which won?t be pinned to the taskbar, but will instead be available in the Start menu.Click to expand...

hmm; Incompatibility and security issues are why many left IE in the first place. Users of Firefox, Opera and Chrome have no (or few) compatibility issues so why step back into the fire???
 

Answer:Will you opt for Microsoft Edge?

I read about this a while back (when Edge (the name) was first announced). Has something changed since then? I thought the part you quoted is for those terrible businesses that have websites that require IE to work. I think Edge is a lot more cool with web standards than IE (especially older IEs) and Microsoft is basically saying if there is some site that requires IE to work properly, you will still have IE to fall back on to.

Metro IE works so well it makes you wonder why Microsoft was so quick to dump it for Edge. Why not just improve IE for desktop and mobile? Maybe MS has a plan for Edge that I can't see yet.

My CPU is: AMD Athlon X4 760K Quad Core.

There is no way and according to rule #13 we're not allowed to discuss ad-block tools/software.





13) No ad blocking discussions. This site depends on ads to pay for the costs of running and maintaining it.

Question: Microsoft Edge

Hello,
Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, Internet Explorer has apparently been replaced by Microsoft Edge. I experience difficulty with this new browser, in that it signals security problems for about every second website I want to go to - even absolutely reliable ones. If I click on the "continue anyway" button, nothing happens but the security warning reappearing. This blocks my access even to websites I need for professional use. Does anyone know how to get rid of this problem?
thank you

Answer:Microsoft Edge

Internet explorer is still installed, just use that instead.

Edge is a new browser. Something can't disappear if it's never been there. Edge does not yet have that function, but may in a future upgrade.

No, and No.

How do I enable or be able to sync my data on Edge if I format and freshly install windows in future? is this even possible or Microsoft is still working on it because I cannot find it anywhere to sign-in in the browser

Answer:Microsoft Edge

You can sync reading lists and favorites at the moment. Probably need to be signed in with a MS account to the computer, and probably need the latest updates from MS (The major Update everyone is talking about). Edge is still having stuff slowly added to it. Next is probably going to be [expanded] support for extensions.

Question: Microsoft Edge

Whenever I open up Microsoft Edge on my Desktop PC, it opens with the top sites that have been visited as well as my MSN homepage below. Is it supposed to do that? When I first upgraded to Windows 10, it didn't do this...all it would show was my MSN homepage. Now, if I made a new tab, it would show the recently visited sites or top sites.

Below is the screenshot.

Answer:Microsoft Edge

Since I use IE11 as default and I don't open Edge unless I need to answer question about Edge, my suggestion below can be way off..........

Open Edge > click the 3 dots at top right > Settings > check/select the settings from the screenshot..............
See if that works for you. I use mine as example ONLY.
