Not sure why Wahlamt has so many problems..
Mine were too
The only install I didn't have any problem with as far as I know was the very first one when I clean installed W10 the day it came out. Less than a year or so later (can't remember why, probably put in my SSD) I had to re-install. First off, it took me like 10 tries to get it onto my SSD, all the sudden it just worked O.o. Once installed, it had 0 memory of "last visited" etc after each shutdown. It was actually really annoying since I got used to use popular folders in the quick nav bar thing. Tried everything I could find online to make it work, but it didn't. However like 11 months later in the yearly update, it started working -.-
Then I didn't re-install again until now. Had a bit of trouble figuring out how to make the SSD work, but that wasn't big of an issue. Finally figured out how to do that. Either way, the first time I re-installed edge wouldn't work. No matter what, I could open any webpage, but after the first click it just died. No matter what page. So had to use IE to download Chrome.... Oh, not to mention the "Settings" app froze no matter what I did. Also this worked for like 1 click, maybe up to 3, then it just died (IE still worked...). 2nd re-install I forgot to put the key in so I could activate it, apparently you NEED (?) to do it during the installation process when you clean install it if you have an "upgraded" key, so that didn't work. Either way, got drivers in, googled if I could use the key, due to the key not working and the pc not being activated, I was stuck with all the bloatware, windows was still a little unresponsive.
3rd re-install I KNOW I put the key correctly in but sure it stil couldn't validate it. Can say that after a few hours I was pretty frustrated. So downloaded some activator thing, walla, 30 seconds, no issues. How is it always that you have the right keys, installation files you got from purchase etc etc, but it won't ever work, but you can download a pirate copy and it works 10/10 times without 0 issues? Windows seems to be working fine now, let's see how long it lasts.
Then I got to my mother in laws this weekend and were supposed to look at a laptop, if I needed to do anything to it. "No, seems to work just fine.... nooo wait. Settings app won't even open". Again, stupid settings app. Couldn't even change default browser. Tried googling here to, windows "had" solutions on their forum, tried other stuff, yet nothing works. W10 is great, when it isn't broken..
