Thanks Sunita, got so fed up with hang ups, slowing of laptop in all areas, drop out of games, adds showing in wrong place, just had it, so uninstalled and running windows 7 again, still the best they’ve ever developed.
Ford, You need to go to Favorite and add your homepage and name it Home. Since Microsoft has not provided home button by default till now so you will have to improvise.
