.... opened up the wife's laptop and...what's this...."April 2018 update" ran. The wallpaper we had was changed back to Microsoft's default wallpaper. Microsoft Edge was reset as the default browser, and a Edge icon placed on the desktop as well as the quickstart bar on the bottom. I also noticed that when I hit the "start" button, the Libre Office icon that was at the top was no longer there....the display now shows all apps in alphabetical order instead of by last usage. WTF? WHy would anyone want that? At any rate.... thanks Microsoft for fucking with our computer and changing our settings to what you would rather us do.
