Got Windows 10 yet? Are you sure?

Recommended Posts

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 .

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
