Microsoft ships IE10 for Windows 7(46 posts)
I didn't know that but then again I'm a Chrome fan but the minimalist feel without the favourites bar and the taskbar site launching is appealing at the moment . Will try it out for a few days.
I am debating on should i upgrade to 10 is it really worth it? i mean, i have been using FF for awhile now and love it since i have it customize the way that i want and need it to be. i am kind of like LF here but if it warrants a look i will if people think i should.
If you are using Firefox anyway what difference would it make to update IE? I just did. So far it looks the same. Still a Favorites bar. All my Favorites still there. Don't really see any difference, except perhaps it is perceptively faster. One site I use is not rendering properly, but I'm sure someone will be fixing that soon.
Finally! Someone who actually knows what the Favorites bar is. I asked over on Seven forums and no one seemed to know. Thanks for posting the picture, Xhi! With all the negative changes M$ has been making lately, I'm getting overly paranoid.
LF, the Favorites Bar is the old 'Links'. And if you right click on your taskbar > Toolbars > check 'Links', then you can access it with the chevrons in the taskbar. That is very handy for the frequently used URLs. Launches the IE automatically.
You can also put subfolders (by subject) into there. Then you have direct access to a lot of URLs. I even have subfolders within the subfolders. They pop up when you hover over them.
Mike, thanks for the link. It worked. But that is a typical M$ example of making a simple thing in the most complicated fashion. I wonder how Joe in the next block is going to deal with it.
I suggest to store the download files on the desktop. Makes the path shorter.
Jim, thanks for warning us.
Sorry I don't give out some information as others might not use it wisely and then blame me for fouling up their system.
As you know us Builders have a lot of backup plus hardware so we can try out and do many things that we don't recommend for all to do.
