    Wow very nice new. I wish there was an option to uninstall it and all other metro apps I don't use like I can with Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player.

    I have set Internet Explorer as the default program for all the files and protocols it could open, but Edge occasionally tries to reset itself as the deault program when i click on a .htm file. This "forcing is very annoying. A tool to block this action is welcome.

    I used to be an EDGE hater, mainly because that was the norm since IE... but after some tweaking, I actually love it now, and it's really fast.
