Yes everything that came on the pc is still on it. Now I hate to mention this cause most everbody is gonna think the old man has lost it.

Sometimes when I open something up I get it as 10 and sometimes it is like 8.1.

Sometimes it is only a few seconds sometime more and then it like reverts back to 10. Like it sometimes gets confused.LOL

 

Where I see it most often is opening edge. Useually I get the edge screen but sometimes it is IE with the MSN start page. one other place this happens sometimes is clicking on start at the bottom left corner.

 

Honest folks I aint gone nuts yet.

For example 3 times today when I opened edge I got the IE 11 MSN start page, it only lasted a few seconds each time then the screen would flicker and the Edge start up page would appear.

Looks like a redirection to me. A bit like what happen when you open Internet Explorer for the first time. You have the MSN page, but also a new tab that informs you of what version of Internet Explorer you are using.

I think you mean WildTangent Games App - hp

 

It is one of those apps that you really don't need

 

To get store search for Windows Store

 

Soon, it will learn to use Windows Store instead of hp WildTangent Games Store

 

Also, once you upgrade to Windows 10, it seemed to pin the Windows Store app to the Taskbar

Is there anyway to pin that thing to the task bar or an icon on the desk top?

Many times when I right click the start button it will not show up other times it will come up.

You should be able to either drag it to the Taskbar or the Desktop, or right-click on it and select "Pin to taskbar", "Pin to Start Menu", etc.
