having picked up one of these beasts (I cancelled my pre-order of the HTC 10) I've found that Samsung's application for setting up the edge panel functionality is pretty much perfectly diametrically opposed to the concept of "intuitive" or "user friendly".
This wee introduction might be of some help to others who own one of these and who also can't figure out which branch of logic Samsung have employed when it comes to taking control over the edge panel functions.
Samsung added new features that take advantage of the curved screen; let's take a look.

Even if you don't have it yet, take a look at our Android Marshmallow tips and tricks to see what's in store for you and your Android device.

sadly this doesn't come up with a solution to the one thing that is annoying the Hell out of me about android Marshmallow;
something which is going to have to continue to piss me off as there doesn't seem to be an app to correct Google's stupid idea...
....the "clear all" notifications in previous versions of android has now become just a bit of small, hard to see text saying "clear" at the bottom of the notifications screen, overlaid against the backdrop of whatever else was running when you swiped down the notification screen.
It's always going to be in a different place each time you need to look for it, and look hard for it is something you will have to do, all the time - because you'll need to use it dozens of times per day.
It used to be a single icon on the top notification bar, always visible and always in the same place, and never with any danger of accidentally selecting something else.
I think it's a highly annoying stupid idea and the sort of Muppet-brained idea that Microsoft would come up with if they were trying to sabotage android functionality and user-friendliness.
Bad move Google.

Today’s shock leak of the text of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) marks the beginning of the end for the hated EU-US trade deal, and a key moment in the Brexit debate. The unelected negotiators have kept the talks going until now by means of a fanatical level of secrecy, with threats of criminal prosecution for anyone divulging the treaty’s contents. Now, for the first time, the people of Europe can see for themselves...

We'd like to think but they are sneaky bastards. It will be implemented one way or another. It's been bought and paid for.

I've found this really useful, and it allows control of something that had annoyed me about android for years....
Choose, organise and edit the list of "share to" in android.

TBH, the suggested app 'appchooser' is no longer available on Google Play (although you can download it here http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-4/themes-apps/app-app-chooser-default-app-manager-t2376603 ), but the other suggested app 'andmade share' is more versatile anyway and IS available at Google Play.
If you're like most Android users, your Share menu is cluttered with options you never use. Every time you want to share something, you have to scroll and hunt for the app you're after. It doesn't have to be that way. This is a simple tweak: It's free, it doesn't require you to root your…

Story
Tagline
I'm a former Computer systems guy. I live in Glasgow having recently moved down from Caithness. I'm interested in photography, landscapes, art and architecure, I love music and play keyboards (pretty badly). I like many many types of music. I'm interested in all things geeky and love my Android smartphone. I always stand up for the underdog though this tends to be more with dry humour than heat these days. I've no problem with people following, but please, if you want me to follow back, do have a few posts to give me a reason to follow back. :)

Nice wee comedy/live music venue with very friendly staff and friendly atmosphere. For myself a highlight of the beers selection was superb Czech lagers Budweiser Budvar and Staropramen on draught as well as other excellent beers and cider etc (not that I was looking after spotting the Budvar). Very reasonable prices. I liked my visit and plan on making this a regular haunt.
