Does anyone know what happened to the "Chaseable TIles" feature that was promoted in 2016 as an upcoming feature of Windows 10?
This feature would have allowed you to click on a Start tile that was showing particular content and jump directly to that content (i.e. jump directly to the news story showing on your News tile, rather than just to the base News app).
Through web search, I can find multiple mentions of this feature (including on Thurrott.com) through mid-late 2016 but then all discussion seems to have stopped. I can barely find anything in 2017.
As far as I can tell, it was never implemented in Windows 10.
One feature I found really useful with IE and have come to depend on somewhat (mainly for ease-of-use) is a list of sites pinned to the taskbar button for IE. With this in place, I can go directly to a shortlist of sites by right-clicking IE on the taskbar and selecting the site from the Pinned list.
Edge doesn't seem to offer this. I don't hear a whole lot of complaining about this, so am wondering if others have better or different ways of achieving the same thing - any ideas?
I guess one short answer is - use Chrome or Firefox :)
I haven't seen too much mentioned about this outstanding bug on this site, but wonder if anyone else is affected by it. It's taking quite a long time to resolve, seems to have broad impact, and materially affects the ability to interact with server-based network shares when the location is indexed on the server (which is required if you are adding the folder to a library):
