New Win 10 update

Got an update. One of the things is that Edge will read web pages for you. Pretty neat and funny. It reads everything, buttons, links, everything that has text.

Another nifty thing I found is if you press SHIFT and the Windows button and S, your screens will turn gray and you cursor will be a PLUS sign. You can then click and draw a window somewhere in your screen(s) and it will copy that area to the clipboard. You can then load it in a graphics program, and paste the screenshot in for saving. You can grab 1 little area or complete screens.

Don't need a browser to do this, it is part of Win 10. I use Edge now.

I'm on the Windows 10 Insider program and at the moment Edge doesn't always play sounds. I am now using Google Chrome which for me I find very good.

Gee my Edge talks to me and reads all the web pages for me. I hate Chrome. Tried it once and never again. I always stick to Microsoft for utilities. No mizzila, or Chrome or anything else, used to be IE now the Edge and no looking back.

Are you using "NARRATOR" to do this or is there a setting in MS Edge itself? (Just changing from IE 11 to MS Edge)
Great tips

In the upper right corner is 3 dots, click them for a menu. One option is to READ ALOUD. That's all you have to do. You can read the entire page aloud, or select some text, right click on it and READ ALOUD is there also in the menu from right clicking.

No problem, I wish it was a female voice though instead of the Speak & Spell voice.
