I don't like Edge either. Maybe when they get more add-on support (like adblocker) I will like it better. So I am back to IE too.

If you have not done so already, you might also want to change how Windows Update works on your system. By default, even if you use the Custom install option, the setting is for your system to (my bold underline added) "...get updates and send updates to PCs on my local network, and PCs on the Internet." PCs on the Internet!!! That's too scary for me. You can turn this off but I set mine to "PCs on my local network". Go to Settings > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Choose how updates are delivered.

Also, if you agree with the How-To Geek, I highly recommend Start10. For only $5 ($3.99 for Start8 owners), it's a bargain.
or you can get classic shell which is free :-)
