Default OT Windows 10/Edge issue

Just a thought that as there are some computer experts on here they
might be able to help.

I am running W10 and when using the edge browser the register between
the cursor position and the left hand mouse button is out.

In other words to get a link to work the cursor on the screen has to be
about 1 inch above the link for the left button to activate the link.

Works fine in all other programs (eg Firefox chrome IE) so I assume that
it is something to do with edge so I am not that bothered, but if anyone
does know a quick fix (other than install Linux Mint - that is already
on the other machine) it might be worth a try.

Thanks for the tip. I looked in the forums and found others with the
same problem (but no solution). Looks like I will just have to leave
edge alone until they sort it out.

Well at least you know that it is a 'known problem'. I have not bothered
much with edge myself.

This is a well known problem already. Indeed the blind find that there is no
accessibility API in Edge at all as yet, so it cannot be used.
I understand some control panel applets use Edge, dopoes the same thing
happen there?
Most people I know have rolled their computers back till msoft fix all the
strange things. I guess once again this makes us realise how true is the
phrase, you get what you pay for, and as its free....

The blind can't see the targeted ads being pushed at them as a result of
Windows 10's personal data slurping, which means there's no money in it
for Microsoft or the ad-flingers, so they couldn't give a toss about
you, hence the lack of accessibility features.

Cynical, but that's the way it is. With Windows 10, YOU are the
product.

Update graphics drivers.

Having used W10 on quite a number of computers, and Edge on most of
them, I have not experienced the issue you report. However I have come
across the need to update graphics drivers on a lot of computers that
have been upgraded to W10.

When I upgraded W7 to W10 on my Dell Vostro laptop it was just left with
the regular MS driver, and poor resolution. Device manager found a
better driver.

Some machines have looked not so good at first boot into W10, but
improved either a few minutes later, or after next boot. Something like
that certainly happened on my current personal W10 machine. It is a
slightly-old MacBook Pro.

Dell site might also help - if the machine is classed as supporting W10.

I was not impressed by Dell's lack of help when I upgraded to W8!

I find it incredibly confusing unless you are lucky and their automatic
processes happen to work. Regularly try to decide whether I hate HP's
support site more than Dell's, or the other way around.
