Maryland Blogger: Installing Windows 10

Installing Windows 10

Installing Windows 10

 

Chef Dolores changed roles and became our computer tech to install Windows 10 on our three home office computers. We are happy with the upgrade.

If you have not yet gone through this installation be prepared for the time it will take. The installation took about three hours for two of our computers and about five hours for my computer.

I have been pleased with the upgrade Roy Kelley but I wish I would have stuck with 7 on my older NetBook laptop as it does NOT have a touch screen and that makes it a bit clumsy.

Be for warned that any microsoft programs not compativble with 10, like old MS Office will be wiped out. Back up NOW.

Dolores has been our CTO for a long time without an official title.

Roy,

She should have the title nevertheless.  A

Roy- cheers to Chef Dolores!!!  Not many would tackle that project and I had my brother load Windows 10 when he visited last summer!  I think she deserves a special day trip to wherever she wants.

I've been happy with Windows 10.  My old computer bit the dust, and I had to replace it just as Windows 10 was released.  I had apprehension when I unboxed this new Dell, but quickly warmed up to the new version.

Thanks for the heads up. I had no idea it would take that long and probably longer in my area where the bandwith is small. I've decided not to upgrade. Someone said something about this program not having a built in photo editing program that was user friendly.

Good morning Roy. All the computers we use are new, all have 10 on them. Some of the things we a little different, but all and all, am enjoying the upgrade.

Thank you very much for your comments. It is always good to hear from you.

I installed on both of my Asus laptops and it crashed both of them and had to revert to 8. The tech said it was an Asus problem. Glad your worked out well.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 3 years ago

Thanks, Debbie, for sharing your frustrating but interesting experience.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 3 years ago

Roy Kelley I probably will go 10 when I upgrade the computer.

Thanks, Donald, for stopping by. So far, we are pleased with Windows 10.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 3 years ago

I really like 10, but my husband is still mad that I made him upgrade when I did.  He's a 7 man all the way.  Beautiful orchids!
