Since the administrator cruelly deleted my first attempted post, if somebody knows how to create a keyboard shortcut for a start menu tile in 
windows 10, please enlighten me.    44 guy

Creating a keyboard shortcut

  1. Right-click the desktop shortcut, and then click Properties.
  2. On the Shortcut tab, click in the Shortcut Key box.
  3. Press the keyboard combination that you want to use to start the program. The shortcut combination must consist of one character (a letter, number, or symbol) plus at least two of the following three keys: CTRL, ALT, and SHIFT.
  4. Click OK

Thank you Triple Deuce, for the Source reference, where I was able to get the complete article. It worked great!

By the way, your name reminds me of my 1961 Chevy Impala bubble top coupe with 3 deuces on a 348 ci engine making 280 hp.

Had 4/11 gears and it moved out well. Believe it or not, my Dad let me buy the car as a family car and let me take it to school every day.  What a guy, God Bless his Soul. Be good to your kids, Triple Deuce!  44 guy

Triple Deuce (name reminds me of my muscle car days!):
Perhaps I can prevail upon you to advise me with something else.     I am
running Windows 10 on an Asus Lap top.

Although I clean the computer disk regularly and although I have recently
used AVG Tune Up to make the start up quicker and eliminate some excess
files, I have not been able to solve a really slow loading of Google Chrome
and GMail.

Is Windows 10 deliberately interfering with Google Chrome in one of
Microsoft's many nefarious schemes?

I note that in G Mail, there are 2 loading options on the screen. One of
them is for "slower systems" and that is highlighted.  I cannot figure out
how to change that setting, but that would only affect G Mail and not
Google Chrome itself,

 

Any ideas of why Google won't load "as fast'' as they advertise and like it used to?

I have tried loading an update of Google, but it did not help.  This seems to have started after I, in a spurt of crass stupidity,

allowed Windows 10 to install on my computer. Any advice would be appreciated.  44 Guy

when it comes to chrome im not really sure I tend to avoid browsers made by a data mining company like google so I tend to stick to firefox, the best option I cant think of is uninstall google chrome with www.geekuninstaller.com reboot pc then reinstall it and see if that helps

short of that ive got nothing

TripleDeuce, Okay, sounds reasonable.  As to Google being a "data mining company", what company isn't? That's why I don't go on Facebook - I can't allow my client's matters to be mined by that notorious site.  Microsoft is also a huge data mining company.

As to Mozilla, I use that browser also frequently, but I don't like the Thunderbird e mail companion.

   The real solution is to purchase an Apple, which I intend to do as soon as I accumulate the bucks.

    Thanks for everything, Triple Deuce.  44 Guy

Anyone who thinks that Apple wasn't ahead of the data mining game on Microsoft hasn't used an Apple product in a very long time.

 

The kind of data collected to use Siri is similar to that collected to use Cortana, for starters.  

 

If one wants "old fashioned" privacy then staying out of cyberspace is a requirement.
