    I wont try to upgrade operating systems.. Ive done it in the past on other computers (ME to XP. XP to 8 and then back to 7 and Mac OS7 to 8 and 8 to 9 even 9 to X) and it never went smoothly and it never worked as well as buying a new machine with the new operating system already installed. So Im not even going to try any more... Im just gonna buy a new computer every couple of years

    I "upgraded" to 10 quite a while ago. I lost the ability to print, had no sound and found navigating more difficult. After spending several days and hours trying to get everything working, I went back to 7 pro and I'm staying with it.

    For now, I guess I'm OK with "Run as Administrator" for just one site.

    I'll give my techies a chance to make things right.

    As I said, I upgraded a couple days ago with no problems at all. Now I have had a chance to use it and I am very happy with Windows 10. I just down loaded and installed the Windows 7 games for Windows 10 and it works like it did . I play hearts a lot while I am waiting for virus scans etc. Windows 10 is very similar to Windows 7. I have Windows 10 Pro as I was running Windows 7 Professional.

    I got rid of the Windows Cortana/Search box on the task bar so now the task bar looks just like it did.

    Windows 10 Professional has many pros and I haven't found any cons yet.

    I have been running Win 10 for almost a week now and all seems to be fine. The only hitch was that I had to download new printer drivers. I would say that with fair computer skills the download and installation of Windows 10 was the easiest upgrade yet. Of course, the free download of the upgrade is "over" but I bet it is still available. (i haven't looked)
