Problems with MS, Edge & Bing

Regular readers of my blog will be aware that I’ve been having problems with signing in and commenting on other blogs, to the extent that I almost gave up on making comments. I tried to keep in touch, however, although it was a time-consuming ritual to ‘like’ and to comment as I had to sign in each time I made any comments or ticked a like box.

Now, I hope, I’ve found the answer. Since I got this new HP desktop which came with MS 365 and Win 10 already installed (perfect in every other way), I’ve been trying to find a way of getting rid of MS’s chosen browser Edge and Bing and re-installing Google Chrome. It doesn’t want me to do this and stops me every time. However, I’ve found that if I install Google manually and stay with it for a period of time, like staying in WP and not moving to another site, my problem disappears.

The Community Forum on HP and on Edge and Google all agree that MS and Edge is keeping out those who want to revert to Google. I can only hope that someone finds a permanent solution to what is an unfair use of Microsoft’s power to inflict it’s chosen browser, Bing, on everyone who has the misfortune to buy a computer with Edge and Bing built in.

Meantime, I’ll continue to install Google manually each time before going into Word Press and this way, life may return to normal in some small way.
