    • As a side note, I was able to log into my Microsoft account on this new computer simply by typing a single letter in the password field and hitting enter. This is obviously a severe that you might like to mention.

      My actual password is 14 characters, but I only had to type one character.

      I repeat: I only had to type one character, press enter, and I was logged into all of Microsoft on a brand new computer!

    • Hi,

      I am investigating the support and plans for GPU accelerated SVGs.

      Can you give me more information about the login issue?  This happened when logging in to your Microsoft account ( using Edge or using your Microsoft account to login to your computer?

    • Hi Joe,

      Microsoft Edge SVG implementation is GPU accelerated. We
      build SVG support on top of Direct2D and DirectWrite APIs which provide
      hardware acceleration for rasterization and vector operations. Additionally
      those APIs support fallback to software rasterization in cases where hardware
      support is not available.

      Appreciate the support,

    • I am closing this as by design, because this was a question.  For the login issue, if you can reproduce that issue please submit another bug report.
