Got Windows 10 yet? Are you sure?

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

There are around two months left to upgrade to Windows 10 for free, and Microsoft is determined to get as many people using its new operating system as possible.

As previously announced, the company is now making Windows 10 a ‘recommended’ update but if you see a box popping up reminding you to upgrade, think again before click the red ‘X’ box in the hope of rejecting it.

Usually when you click the top right red ‘X’ icon in a window you’d expect it to shut. But in the new Windows 10 update process, clicking the ‘X’ actually lets the upgrade to go ahead.

I'm very happy with 10 on both laptop and tablet.

I'm running a combination of Windows 7, Windows 10, Debian at home and just about to move to Windows 10 enterprise at work and we seem to be upscaling the use of Windows OS as work phones replacing the ancient blackberries.

I do miss XP!! (although I recall the days of DOS - don't let them fool you - its all still DOS under there!)

the old pc failed and so got a new one with that appalling vista thing on it so bit the bullet and loaded the 'new' 10 - the one with a proper start menu. all was fine until for some reason one of the user accounts decided that it would not display the tiles from the blue windows logo and completely lost edge ??? so now back to IE version whatever and have a user account that runs very slowly in accessing  programmes from the start menu of windows but not from the sensible way of starting them - all other accounts are fine -since when did they become APPS???????????

Nowt wrang wi' Vista! ................................... once you've disable UAC!

Both my Vista machines have been running fine for years now. They run everything I need, including the hardwareI use in my 'day' job (making stuff for ebay), a wide format printer and a drag-knife cutter.

If I were you I'd do a clean install on 10 as upgrading may have borked something.

10 was installed last year and has been ok up until now and its only affecting one user account -- seems to be a settings thing somewhere --will have to do some head scratching over it .

    • Film star Anthony Quayle featured in memorable war movies from Ice Cold in Alex and the Battle of the River plate to The Eagle Has landed, the Guns of Navarone and Lawrence of Arabia.
      But his actual wartime exploits saw him serve as a key figure in a “secret army” being readied in Northumberland in case Germany had invaded during the Second World War.
      The then Captain Quayle was intelligence officer for the Northumberland and Scottish Borders hand-picked patrol units, most of whose members were drawn from the Home Guard.
      If an invasion had taken place, they would have gone underground and later re-emerged as a resistance army of snipers, trained in unarmed combat, explosives and sabotage.
      The actor’s involvement is recounted in a new book which focuses on how the war impacted on people in the North East.
      Neil Storey and partner Fiona Kay, who live in Cramlington in Northumberland, have carried out extensive research in the region’s archives, and have also gathered material from newspapers and first-hand accounts of the time, and family stories.
