Drupal is up and running but how do I ...?

changing default language and suppressing URL prefix


I use Drupal 8.5, initial installation was in English, but I want the site in German so I followed the steps described here: https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/multilingual/install-a-language and installed German and changed the default language to German.

My only problem now is that Drupal keeps adding /de/ in the URLs but I don't want this.

How can I get rid of this?

Should I delete the English language?

thank you & best regards

What is the best way to create a custom home page?

I am using Drupal 8 and want to create a custom home page, with a slideshow, content teasers, a news feed, main navigation, footer navigation, and a login area. 

The basic content page doesn't really give me those kind of options. Is there a "best practice" or best method I should be using to do so?

Should I be using Views? Panels? Blocks? Custom templating in Twig? What method do you use and why?

Any answers / help would be greatly appreciated!

Drupal 7 not loading CSS in IE Version 11

I have been trying everything from enabling/disabling "Aggregate and compress CSS files" to Installing Conditional Stylesheets.  None of those seem to help with the Styling of my website.  Does anyone know how to fix that? looks like most of the talks on this topic are from years ago.

Grouping the Person Content Type in a View

I don't know the best way to achieve a result so I will provide the scenario and ask for HOW-TO advice. When the view displays, I ultimately need it to group my person content type into 6 rows/sections.
