  1. Until recently, if you wanted to download individual updates, especially if you experienced a problem installing a particular update through Windows Update; you could do it through the Microsoft Update Catalog. One minor issue though, you had to use Internet Explorer in Windows 10. Microsoft's reasoning for requiring Internet Explorer to download updates from the Update Catalog depended on a unique technology called, ActiveX Controls. ActiveX is the descendant of a 90's technology called Object Linking and Embedding, which made it easy to incorporate content from different applications. Today, Microsoft announced you can now download updates from the Update Catalog using popular third party web browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Also, Microsoft Edge users access the site too.

    I am new to Groovy Post but love the articles. I have a question with Microsoft Edge, how can I sort the favorites as I used to be able to with Microsoft Explorer? I.E the folders were at the top in alphabetical order then all of the other favorites listed separately were also sorted alphabetically.

     

    Here's a quick tip on how to adjust the Favorites Bar / Favorites on Microsoft Edge.

    <See screenshot below as walking through steps>

    Step 1 - Click 3 Bars at top Right of Edge Browser

    Step 2 - Click STAR Favorites Icon

    Step 3 - Navigate to Favorites you want to Sort

    Step 4 - Click-and-Drag links to sort them.
