I don't know how to even explain this, it happened yesterday.

I bought the game Age of Empires Definitive Edition and since then, anything microsoft related has gone gay on me. These problems so far seem to effect microsoft edge, microsoft store and even the game AOE that i bought from it.

I can't close Microsoft Edge without using the task manager. The x doesn't work and if i have more than one tab, it would ask you to either close tabs or cancel. If i choose close tab, it would high light, the moment i click it, the highlight would go to cancel. If i press cancel, nothing happens. This is where i have to force close it with task manager as cancel, close tabs and the X doesn't do what it should do.

The store itself kinda has the same problem. I can use the x to close it, but when i'm trying to browse a game, video or app. The one i high light wont let me click on it. The high light would then flicker through all the games and not let me click the one i want.

The during gameplay of AOEDE, some of the buttons don't work, i have to press enter a dozen times during game play just to get it to pop up.

The thing is, i don't get any of these issues on my other web browsers like firefox, operah, chrome or other games at the moment. This weirdness just seems to affect anything thats Microsoft store/web or game related.

Has anyone else had a problem with this.

I wish i could explain it better, but from where i'm sitting, this thing just started the moment i ended up buying from the Microsoft store yesterday

I haven't had any problems. I've used W10 Store quiet a bit this past week to re-download Forza Horizon 3, Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Hub, Gears 4 & Gears Ultimate Edition on to another HDD. Maybe some newer Windows Updates are giving you problems? You can try uninstalling recent updates.

No problems for me after buying AOE DE. FYI, using "gone all gay on me" to refer to your OS getting all f*cked up isn't really ok in the posting guidelines.

I can't say I really see any specific mention in the posting guidelines stickied at the top of the PC/Mac/Linux Society that I would really attribute the "gone all gay on me" towards.

  • I wouldn't consider it as hate speech nor as a threat.
  • I don't see it as a post simply created to get a rise out of others without substantial info provided in the post.
  • The TC isn't trolling and isn't flaming anyone and it's not a disruptive post

I'd say the comment could more in line fall within the "Community Code of Conduct" as it could be considered Harassment (but folks these days are too damn touchy and everything seems to offend everyone - and that offends me). Here is the section about Harassment:

#2 – Harassment / Bullying

Including but not limited to hateful, personal attacks against other members, sexism, racism, slurs or similar statements. Ad hominem and other distracting attacks do not add anything to the conversation. When our digital pride is on the line, emotions can run high. Every person that you encounter is going to carry a different set of circumstances with them, and therefore is going to have a different level of tolerance for frustration. If you end up talking with someone you think is harassing/bullying you (or other users), don't lower yourself to his or her level. Instead, politely ask them to calm down. If someone's really starting to bother you, please do not retaliate, instead report it to a moderator.

Topics, Posts and Comments: Posts that are inappropriate, profane, vulgar, offensive, false, disparaging, defamatory, obscene, illegal, sexually explicit, racist, promotes violence, racial hatred, or terrorism, or are otherwise deemed, in our sole discretion, to be otherwise objectionable are subject to moderation.

Stereotypes: Offensive generalizations and/or mocking groups, alternate communities, and/or organizations is considered a form of discrimination and can result in moderation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With all of that aside, I found the comment humorous and I don't think it was intended in any way to cause some kind of harm.

As for Windows Store and Edge issue - I'm not sure since I rarely use Win 10, never used Edge and I don't use the Windows Store.....but, you could try resetting Edge to see if that helps. Do make note that this link is from about 2.5 years ago, so I'm not sure if it still applies with Windows 10 today.

@neatfeatguy: I didn't ban the guy, just gave him a gentle warning, and yes, I was referring to the CoC, not the board-specific posting rules (which vary from board to board). We consider that homophobic language. It's not exactly the worst thing anyone's ever said around here, hence my mild-mannered reply on the wording. A lot of people don't think about how phrasing like that can be hurtful to others
