If i am in wrong catagory let me know. SEND HELP I\’M SINKING!!!!!
There isn\’t a problem using an AOL email address, however you should really consider having an MS one as well. The main difference in my mind with PC\’s now and in the past is how the account is structured, nowadays it\’s YOU using the CLOUD that is the important part of the system, so you set up an MS/outlook/Hotmail account, and you use this on each device you have for example PC/Tablet/Xbox/Phone and the one account synchronises your details across the devices. Within that you can still set up and use other emails for example I have an MS account/Hotmail email address but I also have and use a Gmail email address and this is also set up on my PC/two tablets/mobile phone. As to what browser you use, I tend to use Edge most of the time, but I also have IE and Firefox installed and use them at various times, Edge is still new and like Windows itself "Still in development". Good luck and I am sure more help will be available.
