There is no Windows 10 Desktop Edition for the Raspbery Pi, this forum is for the Windows 10 IoT Core Version, hence why under Programming, see:girish_kumar wrote:Folks,
Does anyone know about any Web Browser that can run on Win10 on RPi ?
I just had a look at the project Spartan, but did not find anything specific to RPi ?
Has anyone tried any other Browser on RPi ? If so can you share me the details
If a browser is not available how do we download and install apps on Win10 on RPi ?/
IOW, this "Windows 10 IoT" is WINO.There is no Windows 10 Desktop Edition for the Raspbery Pi,
Just be aware that at the moment you will get bad performance when doing fancy graphics things since the GPU is not working yet for Windows IOT on the Raspberry PI 2.girish_kumar wrote:Folks,
Thanks a lot for all your responses, on my question on Web Browser I appreciate your quick responses.
I started with computers during the days of MS DOS. Those days, my computer had only 640 KB to RAM and one floppy Drive which can take 360 KB as storage. Still, I enjoyed MS APIs and writing apps which takes the control of the whole screen.
To me RPi with 1GB of RAM and 32GB SD card is a BIG Luxury, I was excited to see Windows on it. I want to build a cool smart TV app based on Windows 10, for my kids to play with, that is my idea. So to start with, I thought of using the default web browser, but now I understand it is targeted towards IoT only and I need to write apps which take take control of screen and rest of will be headless, this really sounds interesting a different challenge from RPi Linux.
One again thanks .to all your responses.
I did just this, put a WebView control on a universal app with a text box and a couple of buttons for entering a URL and very basic navigation.StuartJames wrote:The latest WIndows 10 IOT Core will happily allow you to place a WebBrowser control onto a UI page of your application. You can set properties to show any web browser controls to allow users to enter a url, go back, forward, reload, etc.
