One of the biggest problems in Windows 10 will be solved soon, as Microsoft will allow users to add extensions to its web browser. Microsoft Edge was not the users’ first option because this feature was not included when the Windows 10 was launched at the end of July 2015, and they preferred to install Chrome or Firefox because these browsers supported third-party add-ons.
From now on, the users will be able to install third-party add-ons such as ad-blockers, a functionality that was missing from the Microsoft Edge web browser and which will be introduced in the next version of Windows 10, which was codenamed RedStone. Microsoft was hoping to push out extensions by the end of last year and we don’t know why this had to be delayed until mid-2016.
Currently, there are three supported Edge extensions, such as Microsoft Translator, Reddit Enhancement Suite and Mouse Gestures which can be previewed by the Windows Insiders and in the upcoming months, they will roll out via the Windows 10 Store.
After its launch and until December 2015, there were 200 million computers running on the new Microsoft operating system, but the company is planning to get the Windows 10 running on one billion devices within two years of its release. Unfortunately, the new OS doesn’t run flawlessly, as it has some annoying issues, such as slow boot-up speeds and some of the users have complained that they had troubles with the wifi connection in earlier versions of Windows.
Until July 29 2016, the Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users who bought a legal copy will be allowed to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. In January, Microsoft has changed the status of the Windows 10 upgrade to a Recommended update, but there are users who criticized Microsoft for automatically upgrading their computers without their consent. And that’s because when they received the notification upgrade and didn’t cancel the installation, 4-5 days later, Windows 10 was automatically installed on their devices.
