    Networking Win 10 with Win 7

    I have a desktop PC and two laptops all running Win 7 and networked through my router. I'd like to upgrade one of the laptops to Win 10 as a trial starter for probable upgrade on all but do not wish to lose the network connection in the meantime. Is that going to be a problem and, if so, what can/must I do to get around it?

    Edit - Just back from hols, rushed to post query before spending time reading!! Clearly there could be problems so will stay with Win 7 for now and poss post again later.
