    Sorry, I didn't type a "not" and had several mistakes. Now I think you can understand it.

    You are free to express your personal opinion; you are not free to shove it down my throat! And that's what you're doing; if we disagree with you, you attack. Not nice at all.

    Edit: Oooohhhhhhhhh, and now you're putting words into my mouth! Thanks anyway, but I can say what I mean and don't need any help with that.
    To shove it down your throat. What are you talking about?
    Did I PM you?
    Did I control your web browser and ordered you to read?

    You even said you didn't read my first post because it was too large. Man, put your mind and yourself together, your words start to make no sense.

    I do not attack anyone here, and if I do, prove it. Thank you.

    When I was a kid, I had to type my programs into the computer from a magazine, each time I wanted to use them because I had no storage device. Uphill. Both ways.
    I remember this, we although with our "Adam" were able to purchase a tape drive to store programs we had typed in, in CP

    I had several tapes of Reloading Data records, I was an adult I bought the Adam for my kids as I didn't want them to behind the pack on techonolgy

    Yes, I stored my programs on tape too. My first computer came with, I believe, 4 kb of RAM!

    Ok, have better things to do now. I was installing and setting a Linux on an old laptop during this discussion and now I'm finished and very sorry it will not run W10. Would have finished long time ago with half of effort.

    Well, it only lasted 1 hour in my laptop
    then TL;DR took precedence.

    A lot of humans can't handle change, no matter how minor or superficial. It may be worth working on your character before you die.

    No one else cares if you like Win 10 or not.

    You've gone back to Windows 8? Well bully for you. Someone give this boy a friggin' medal.

    Agree (or at least sympathize) with a lot of this, but (painfully) adhering to my personal rule of thumb to stick with any new Windows OS for at least two weeks (as in, use it exclusively) before jumping back - I often find that I've grown accustomed to the new OS, and while I can usually honestly say that the old OS did some things better, the new OS often has improvements that aren't available in the old OS and are useful enough to keep me.

    btw, I come from the "liked Windows 7, LOVED Windows 8" camp.

    6 - Explorer is a nuclear white since Vista. At least now you get useful quick access shortcuts.
    "No" on both counts.

    WiFi and how much traffic you used can be found under:

    Start -> Settings -> Network & Internet -> Data Usage

    You get information about how much traffic you used thru Wi-Fi and Ethernet.

    If you click on Usage details, you can even see how much traffic each app generated.

    Isn't this nice from Microsoft?

    If it wasn't for Start8 I would never have used 8 or 8.1

    I'm lucky to have some of each OS, although I have just retired my last XP. I am keeping two copies of W7 and one 8.1. The 8.1 has been upgraded from one of the earliest W8 cheap upgrades from XP and has been one most reliable operating systems that I have ever had. Although I have been using W10 since it first came out, I still find 8.1 easier to use.
