@manadar I know it used to be WIN + SHIFT + ARROW Key. None of my WIN10 machines are dual monitors yet, so not sure if that carried through.

How do you get the normal about:tabs in edge? The only tabs I can seem to get are Bing suggested sites and Bing news, not my most frequented websites.

With IE and I believe chrome as well, if you set your home page to "about:tabs" then whenever you opened a new web browser or tab, you got a page that had 8-10 tiles of your most visited web pages.

edge only has the option of opening new tabs with top sites and suggested content, top sites, or a blank page. Top sites is close and maybe with more use will adjust to what I'm used to. But right now just has a bunch of sites I've no interest in.

Ah I see. I would hope they would arrive gradually, but I would have expected the customize button on the top sites page to allow you to add sites to those spaces where you remove the tiles, or at least allow you to start on a favourites page.

Anyone know how to disable web searching in the windows search?

I've tried group policy as per here but I still get results from web, even after forcing update 

EDIT:

Never mind, I missed a big settings icon at the side of the actual search window wherein there is a setting to turn it off. Duh!

To access Windows 10's (and any other version of Windows 7+) system tools menu, you create a folder and give it the name GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} the text before the "." can be anything it doesn't have to be GodMode. Makes it easier to access a lot of system settings that you might have to hunt around for in the new version.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Edge is not IE. As to whether there will be a UDF, depends on who decides they want to write one. All UDFs are there because someone found the interest (and the time) to write them.

Will there be a UDF for Microsoft Edge, or is this basically a new name for IE 12?

And also bear in mind Edge is missing a lot of stuff atmo, a lot of the extra stuff that other browsers have. MS will be updating Edge for a while so i would expect a UDF later rather than sooner

Lets say 2001, when IE 6 was initially released.

http://blog.html5test.com/2015/07/a-eulogy-for-internet-explorer-1995-2015/ << Quite a funny video, but also informative that Microsoft did pave the way for a lot of standards e.g. XMLHttpRequest, which is what we now use for Ajax =)

Apparently to hide windows updates you don't need (Like my NVidia display drivers which are always older on MS than what NVidia actually has)

You need this tool

      Scite comes op occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx

      Ive had a bit of code from a long time ago and its always worked perfectly until recently
      It creates a restore point of a given name that i choose and i use it when i finalize a customers pc to go back to them.
      the original code was from Venom 007
      Global $CuDate = _Date_Time_GetLocalTime() Global $sRestorePointName = 'Tech_Finish ' & StringTrimRight(_Date_Time_SystemTimeToDateTimeStr($CuDate), 9) Func _CreateRestorePoint($sRestorePointName) ; Author = Venom007 SplashTextOn('Restore Point', 'Creating Restore Point.' & @CRLF & @CRLF & _ 'Please Wait', 300, 90, -1, -1, 18) Local $objSystemRestore $objSystemRestore = ObjGet('winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!root/default:SystemRestore') If Not $objSystemRestore.createrestorepoint($sRestorePointName, 0, 100) = 0 Then SetError(1) SplashOff() If Not @error Then SplashTextOn('System Restore', 'System Restore Point Created Successfully.', 300, 45) Sleep(2000) SplashOff() Else SplashTextOn('System Restore Error', 'System Restore Point Was Not Created.', 300, 45) Sleep(2000) SplashOff() EndIf EndFunc ;==>_CreateRestorePoint Just recently now im seeing windows 10 machines it fails at this line im pretty sure
      $objSystemRestore = ObjGet('winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!root/default:SystemRestore') Does anyone know what has changed in win 10 to cause this?

      Something i worked out today for checking browser
      Edge is not a traditional program (its an app to all intense and purpose) so not as simple to access
      This how i got it working 
      Local $edge_test = FileExists(@WindowsDir & '\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge.exe') If $edge_test = 1 Then Local $edge = RunWait('explorer.exe shell:AppsFolder\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe!MicrosoftEdge') EndIf The runwait will work for other apps as well if you change the appfolder location to the right app
      There maybe other ways but this is best ive come up with so far
      Enjoy

      Hi!

      I have outlook 2003 and a ready configured exchange profile.
      My question: How to get the mailadresse of the current configured profile ?
      the is an outlook UDF but there is nothing about (account info).

      maybe it is more simple with registry but what key store the mailadress of the current profile ?

      Thanks a lot
