    10166 Downloaded and Installed

    Whatever it was in my Inspiron 580 that was choking 10162 evidently was just an appetizer for 10166. It installed smoothly and seems to be running quite well. Still have quite a bit of piddlin' and straightening up to do, but it is an upgrade, not a clean install, which is what I was after.

    I'll get it neatened up with both accounts and make a fresh drive image.

    Got the basics of each account regrouped. Edge still wants to open full screen, and I keep resizing it. It won't start on my page of choice, either, but beta.

    Got a drive image going in the background, soon as it finishes I'm going to bed.

    Have a play with the settings in Edge. I had to fiddle around a bit but was able to get Edge to start with the main Google search page.

    The last couple of builds Edge had to be adjusted and resized for about three days before it would finally hold my preferences.

    Another issue with this build is that I can access my home network through my standard user account, but not at all through my Admin account. I don't use Home Group, and have it disabled. "Diagnose" can't find the network at first, then it finds it, but has this PC name as a domain name when it asks for credentials, which gets nowhere.

    July 29? Really?
