[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Have you tried Apache Open Office? It is a free download. I didn't want to pay for Office every year and use it for my Word stuff and use their spreadsheets for the Survivor pool that I run. I don't have any issues with them.

I use Google Chrome for everything, but I always have another browser open for logging on as Admin. I used to use Firefox but it wasn't performing like it used to on Windows 10. I started using Microsoft Edge and I think it's slowing my laptop to unbearable levels.

I was quite happy with Windows 8 which came with Office, which I didn't have to pay for, (and now you do every year) and all programs were great. Now just trying to open a pic is a challenge and not the way I like it. Plus it doesn't matter which secondary browser I have open, it slows right down and gets all jumpy.

I've never been more frustrated switching laptops in all my years as I have been with Windows 10.
First question: Why don't you just open this site in a new window in Chrome instead of using another browser?  FWIW, I am having an issue with logging in to my credit card website because of Flash (never had an issue until 2020 rolled in). But I can open it and login if I use a new incognito window.

Secondly, I have the windows subscription and have no problems with it slowing down my computer.  But then I mainly only use Excel and OneNote at times.  I prefer my word processing in Word Perfect that I have used for 2 decades. I have an older version that still works and since I don't need the latest and greatest it works for me.

And, lastly, maybe your laptop has a lot of other crap auto loading that slows it down.  Win10 does that. When I got my new desktop in June, I went through and looked at everything that they deem necessary to start up and turned the majority of it off.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] thanks for that! I tried something else and it was useless. Does that have Outlook? I haven't looked into it yet.

That's another thing. Outlook for me is the best and I've been playing with other email programs on my secondary laptop and I don't like any of them.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] No it doesn't have outlook as part of it. It is strictly a free open version of Office. I don't need Office for business or want to pay for it so I discovered this.

You are much more tech savvy than I am so you would need to look into if it would work for you, but it I use is instead of Word and do my spreadsheets on it. They have other things on it for presentations and templates of various things.

In the last month, I've had to get a new work laptop, which meant I had to get Window's 10 (from Windows 8) I think without the support, the Windows 8 was crashing on me. Then I had to get a new adapter because I hook up a monitor and keyboard to my laptop and of course it was older than the laptop model. Finding the adapter was a challenge. Then my mouse was acting up, so I got another mouse. The other day my keyboard died, and no matter what I did I could not get it to work. So I had to buy another keyboard.

I'm not a fan of Windows 10 but I have no choice. I use Google Chrome for everything, but I always have another browser open for logging on as Admin. I used to use Firefox but it wasn't performing like it used to on Windows 10. I started using Microsoft Edge and I think it's slowing my laptop to unbearable levels.

Im using windows 10 on my laptop and haven't had any problems , are you sure the problem isn't with the browers your using.? Maybe having two different ones opened at the same time is what's slowing it down. I'm using AOL for the forum but occasionally I open internet explorer but I close out of AOL when I do.

I think one of the problems, is I got a fitbit for xmas and downloaded the app. Once I got rid of that it seems to have corrected the slow down/freezing.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] can you open PDF files with Apache? I cannot believe every time I try to do something, it costs money. Adobe used to be completely free. Now you get the free version that pretty much opens the file, but you can't do much more without paying for it.

It opens the PDF files that I use as part of Apache. I think it will open the old Adobe files, but I'm not 100% sure. You would have to try it.
