In Windows 10 scrollbars are not always present

I've switched from Windows 8 to Windows 10 on a desktop PC without a touchscreen. I've noticed that scrollbars appear when first opening the application for main menu screen that allows you to see various articles and categories. However, once an article is entered, the scrollbars are not accessible for text that extends beyond the screen. I've also noticed that once the article is exited and the main menu is restored, the scrollbars no longer appear. The scrollbars only reappear once the app is restarted. As I recall, this application seemed to function without such quirkiness under Windows 8(8.1). I think in that case, there were no scroll bars and one just moved the mouse cursor to the edge of the screen at which point little arrows pointing right or left would be pressed to switch to the next screen. Perhaps, the problems are due to the lack of such arrows appearing in Windows 10.

Some Articles do not display well.

Some articles do not display well , or display well on 1080p. While reading articles, often times I will see the last few lines of text display off screen with no function to scroll down. This problem almost seems like the advertisement at the top is to large, and bumping the text down, and the application has no function to trigger the scrolling. Maybe the devs use larger displays and do not see this issue while testing. The content is good, and just another way to read tom's.

Great App but....

I like the site and I go to almost everyday if not every other day. Although I took points for when you go through the review section the pictures hardly ever show. Other that the app is functional except for the pictures not showing.

Still seeing a gap between the top bar and the article title which tends to cut off at the bottom text on lower res screens.

Ok, but...

I enjoy Tom's news, but this app is too buggy. Immediate improvements must include: - change the font - it is too difficult to read for long periods - add zooming ability to page content. It shouldn't be approved for metro without this mandated UI capability - enable copying. Countless times I've blown off a product because I couldn't copy a model number or some other piece of info for further research.

nice layout but crashes constantly

Looks great and is easy to find new news, but unfortunately the app constantly crashes when I hover or click on images.

Good App, some crashes (would be 5 if no crashes)

I like the app and use it a lot. However, I have noticed of late that it crashes whenever I mouse over (or touch) an image when reading a specific article. This started a few months ago and I was hoping it would be fixed, but I have not see a fix yet.

informative but....

Very useful for technic freaks, but crashes too often! Almost every article can crash this app....very unstable! I hope it is going to be improved very soon....

Problems with Tom's Guide

I like the information provided but moving the cursor over a graphic / picture causes the app to crash. This happens with both Nvidia and AMD graphics cards on two different PCs so it's an app problem, not a video card or driver problem. Please fix this issue as it's very irritating to click on an article and have it crash immediately because a graphic appears where the cursor happens to be when the article opens.

Works well but do not move the mouse.

For those wondering about the crashes when moving the mouse, you can mouse around as long as you don't touch the edge of a picture on the article. It will crash if you do, otherwise, park the mouse away from any pics in the article and read away. I would have given it 4 stars if it weren't for the annoying crashes.
