 Thanks george


 Well when  I first started using PCs it was DOS 3 and windows 
was not really on the radar.  I have progressed through all the 
versions of windows.  The afor mentioned laptop came with vista 
and I downgraded it to XP.  Being stubborn I stayed with XP on my 
main machine for a long time before upgrading to windows 7.  This 
time however I am in agreement with Steve gibson from security 
now and will only change to windows 10 kicking and screaming.  
either that or move to Linux.  Or will I eat my words.  lol.

 Hi Darren,

 Windows 10 is like any other new operating system.  You can and 
do
 need to configure it to suit your own purposes.

 I must confess that I put it off for quite a while, but in the 
end I
 went ahead.  Initially my language almost required me to 
redecorate my
 office, but once I decided to tame the brute, I began to like 
it.

 The off-putting initial clutter at the start can easily be 
cleaned up
 by deleting items you don't want and adding ones which you do.

 Once inside, your programs and applications should be familiar 
to you.

 Do give it a go.

 George

 Hi George


 I upgraded my old laptop to windows 10 last week using the 
button on
 the following Microsoft page, but it did not ask me for any kind 
of proof.
 It just downloads the update in the background then starts the
 installation procedure.  After a few resets it comes up with the
 configuration screens which were easily accessible once narrator 
was
 started.  I had NVDA running before the installation so maybe 
that
 qualified me.  Once windows started properly NVDA started and I 
was
 ready to go.  I created a Microsoft account so that in the 
future I can
 do a fresh install on the laptop.  However i dont foresee me 
moving to
 windows
 10 for my main PC and laptop as I much prefer windows 7.  From 
playing
 around with windows 10 it just seems way too busy and intrusive 
for my liking.


 here is the link for those who still want the fre upgrade.
