    I've worked in computer labs at my school for years, I say that to let you know I am a bit familiar with computers. The older versions at least. Wouldn't you know the year I retire I buy a new home computer and it's a windows 10. When I ask a question Cortana takes me to a link that wants to charge me to answer my question. This is just crazy...Am I the only one who hates this windows...now I think my computer upgraded to Edge or something like that... I plug in my iPhone and my computer doesn't even recognize it...never had a computer do that before....I thought surely there is a forum of people like me who found answers and a way to figure this thing out. I couldn't even burn a CD the other day...I looked all over for the rip button...not there...why did Microsoft mess up a good thing does anyone know any of the answers to my questions?
    Sorry guess I was suppose to introduce myself....I'm a recent retiree of the board of education. I am a widow who loves or did love fooling around on my computer....not so much anymore.
    Thanks for reading my intro...lol

    Hello Brenda and welcome to the forum.
    Windows 10 still has Internet Explorer build in and you can find it down in your start menu under Windows Accessories. You can make it your default browser or install something else if you prefer a different browser experience altogether
    Likewise Windows Media Player.... and It still has the Rip button, I use it all the time.
    Sorry on that one you are on your own, although you might want to try the Phone Companion App
    AND
    You should probably make sure that you are all caught up and up-to-date with Windows Updates and running the latest version.

    Wow!...that's a helluva intro Brenda! and welcome to the forum btw!..Trouble has covered it all in his reply so I have nothing to add but to say, Windows 10 is an acquired taste indeed but it's really not all that bad..it's actually a good OS once you get accustomed to the inner workings.
    I have found myself saying with more regularity since I upgraded from 7 to 10.." it can always be worse "!
    Seems to numb the migraines somewhat...;)
