This afternoon every time I try to enter a lat/long it turns out like this.
As I cannot upload I will try to describe the situation.

RHS side panel showing location and map.
For an entry of 31 06 00 N, 131 13 00 E in IE11. I see 31 06 00 N in normal black type then a Blue Skype symbol followed by 131 13 00 in blue and E is normal. when I do it in Edge then 131 13 00 is underlined and the E normal.

This is new and nothing has changed since this morning when it was normal.
I do not knowingly have skype running.
Win10 and IE11 or Edge
Have rebooted the PC

Any suggestions or do I just ignore the side panel?

As long as the saved version (My Pages) is OK, I wouldn't worry about the side panel.

Regarding the Skype symbol... it's the skype plugin detecting that sequence of ciphers as a telephone number ::)

You can disable it (by the way it's generally pretty useless) via Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs -> Manage Add-ons... in the list of "Toolbars and Extensions" there should be some Skype voice, select it and click on Disable (a browser restart could be needed before skype icon disappear).
