My computer just switched itself over from Windows 7 to Windows 10. With it Internet Explorer was replaced with Microsoft Edge. The Yahoo e-mail basically freezes on starting. It still works in Mozilla and Chrome.

Does anyone know a fix?

Use Internet Explorer? It's still there. Click the search icon or type in the search box INTERNET... explorer should pop up. Right click, pin to taskbar.

Then do this:

Yes. Continue to use Mozilla or Chrome and don't waste your time with Edge.

Chrome doesn't work properly in windows 10. When I try to do a search it seems to search in Yahoo? Weird. I have ad blocker plus on chrome, worked great. Can't put it on Edge. It says my printer is disconnected now, what a mess.

You have to update Chrome to 64-bit version. It seems to work fine for me. I have only tried Edge for a couple of things. Not impressed.

As for search options, you may need to go back to "Internet Options" and re-configure default Home Page and default Search Options.

If you came from Win 7, there is a bit of a learning curve with Win 10. If coming from win 8/8.1, the learning curve is not so bad, but still a bit of a PiA

Thank you Lars. Your comments gave me the courage to dig into this thing a bit, on the order or what you said, and I've got everything running like a little sewing machine!

Thanks. I hope for more comments since while well-intentioned these comments dont give a real fix. I am surprised that no one at Microsoft and/or Yahoo has tackled this mess. Or Edge's lack of a menu bar.

The "fix" is to not use Edge. It's just Internet Exploder with a new dress.
Here, you probably have a lot of people who noticed similar issues, and went for the work-around. (Use Chrome or Firefox)

Post your question on the Microsoft Forum where all the MS developers hang out. THEY might be able to come up with a "real fix."

It's certainly NOT IE with a new dress. It would be if IE's DNA was completely decompiled and rebuilt into a new person.
It has nothing in common with IE.
And it actually isn't too bad and does many things better then IE / Chrome and FF.
