With the release of the Windows 10 operating system, the Microsoft Edge browser was released on the market. It's not yet a finished software product as Microsoft still has new features in development for it but it is a working product and it delivers at least the basics required for browsing the web. Some people consider the initial release of Microsoft Edge to be quite promising while others consider it underwhelming. After using it for the last couple of weeks, we would like to share with you the things that we believe make Microsoft Edge a better browser than others. Here they are:
When working with larger amounts of text you can quickly find yourself looking for a part you just can't remember exactly. This is when Microsoft Word's Find feature comes in handy.

In one of our previous tutorials on the Android mobile operating system, we taught you how to use the Google Play Store to find and install the apps you need. That is the most important and within reach method of installing apps onto your Android-based mobile device, but it's not the only one. Say you're an Android developer. You're building apps for the Android ecosystem, but before you get to launch your app in the Google Play Store, you have to test it while it is under development. Another case might be that you're working in a company that uses its own-developed Android apps that don't need to be published to the app store, since they're not intended for general use. What do you do, how do you install them on your device? Luckily, there's the "sideload" method. This implies getting a hold of the .apk file (.apk is the file format used for Android app installers), load it onto your device and install it locally, without going through the Google Play Store. In this tutorial, we'll teach you how to achieve exactly that.

Windows 10 comes with quite a few pre-installed universal apps, such as Calendar, Mail, Camera, Photos and so on. While some people like them and find them useful, others do not. If you don’t want some of these bundled apps on your Windows 10 device, you might be wondering if they can be removed from the Start Menu or even completely removed from your system. While a few of the built-in apps can be uninstalled by simply right clicking on them and selecting the Uninstall option, most of them don’t offer this option. That is because Microsoft considers them to be core apps, required by Windows 10 to offer you Microsoft’s intended user experience. However, you can uninstall any universal app, if you use PowerShell, so in today's tutorial we'll show you how it’s done:
