    Windows10 Buggy :-(

    I hope I'm in the right forum. I just upgraded to Windows10.

    I'm so disappointed. I want to go back to 8.1. Is this possible? Or, at the very least, is there some way to get a better (working) version of this horrible "upgrade?"

    So, the app screen I was getting used to that came when I pressed the Windows button in between the ctrl and alt ones is no longer a thing?

    The box at the bottom that claims to be a "search web and windows" just highlights when I click on it and won't accept any characters. This kills me, because I live / die with HD search capability, and was in love with Win8 search function.

    I get some helper popup that when I say "no thanks" to it, gives me an are you sure prompt with a "go back" or "close" option. I click close, and it bolds, but just sticks. Then, when I ctrl-alt-del to task manager to give it some help effing off, task manager hangs.

    I am sure there are more, but I can't get past these. I got a blue screen with an un-smiley that told me there was a problem needing restart. It re-started, and was back to the normal disappointing.

    My computer is only a year old and was functioning cherry with Win8.1 up until I got greedy with the free Win10 "upgrade." I can't find anything I like about Win10. Will it get better, and If it ruins another working day for me, can I go back to Win8.1?

    Thank you so much.

    See here: How to: Rollback to a previous version of Windows from Windows 10

    There may be an equivalent tutorial here on tenforums but I can't find it.

    Thank you for that link. I have recourse to roll back, now, which makes me feel like I have a safety net. Do the bugs I mention seem to have echoes in notes from others and / or have fixes / patches? Have been waiting expectantly for this rollout for a while and would hope that there was some hope I wouldn't be left in a ME kind of position, if that makes sense.

    The button that is supposed to be the start menu is a dead link. Dead as the button on the keyboard too. Just like the search box is dead. This version of Windows isn't crap, it's actually semi-malicious. I can't even roll it back through the link you provided, because I can't get to the start menu to be able to follow the directions.

    It says: "Start by opening Settings – Click Start > Settings or type Settings in the search bar and click it or press Windows key + i"

    Without being able to get to the start menu, how else can I find "settings?"

    Thank you!
