    Browser Choice


    The day after upgrading to Windows 8.1 there were Windows Updates to install and we had the Browser Choice again.

    It is something that was included by Microsoft if you lived in Europe. They had to give people the choice of which browser they used, even though people were already able to pick what they wanted to use, it was the stupid courts saying they weren't allowed to bundle the browser with the OS. I mean it's not as if nobody else does it.

    That's OK, I was surprised about it showing again. I didn't have to do it when I got this Notebook that came with Windows 8 but did after doing the update to 8.1.

    It's no hassle just an extra step to do before going online.
