    Thank you for allowing me on your forum, you saved my life today I found you by accident. You also saved me 60 quid on a new printer. Windows 10 had installed an update and changed my printer config and it would not print any text at all from anywhere, pic's and graphic's no problem text no. Thanks again.

    Yeah I stumbled onto SevenForums years ago and then registered for TenForums just in time to forget about it and just using google searches and YouTube videos (big mistake on my part).
    This is the place to get real questions answered, my friend...

    Welcome to Ten Forums Fatneck. MS's recent preview updates have played havoc with some printers. Glad you have it sorted now.

    Welcome to Ten Forums Vanessa.

    I remember when I first got my Win7 PC upgraded to Win10 back in August 2015. I didn't use Classic Shell or anything like that, I spent about two weeks feeling completely lost - then it suddenly clicked and made sense, I felt as 'at home' in W10 as I had been in W7....

    Shawn has already helped me by providing a way to make the taskbar icons larger.
    Thank you Shawn, if you are still around.

    Yes, he is - and busy writing new tutorials as we speak

    Welcome to TenForums, Vanessa. Believe me, you'll love it even more than Windows 7 once you get used to it. I started out with beta testing (Windows Insider Preview) Windows 10 and within a few months, I was completely hooked and could remember very little about Windows 7.

    I started out using Settings instead of Control Panel which gave me a jump ahead. Of course, I had to go back to the Control Panel pretty often in the beginning, but I rarely use it any more. I can't remember the last time I had to do that. Also, I find the Windows 10 Start Menu (sans the tiles) much better than Classic Shell.

    Welcome, Vanessa! I'm sure you'll find many more ways to make your Win 10 comfortable, like your Win 7. Many, many here on Tenforums who made the trek from 7 to 10 and have lots of good advice. Enjoy!

    John Whatley, IT Consultant since 1992


    At the age of 76, I feel like one of the few oldest people still working in IT. Having worked for IBM for 25 years, I took early retirement in 1992, and after a few months of "recovery" from burn out, the retirement bonus was about gone and I started sending out resumés. After over 200 mailed resumés and less than 5 unsuccessful responses, I decided I would never find the one company willing to hire someone who was in their late 40s, especially for an industry so dynamic as "data processing", now called Information Technology.

    Fortunately, I had worked with the IBM PC since 1982, so I received a lot of training and experience that was very beneficial when I left IBM. When the PC was announced by IBM in 1981, it's life-time manufacturing forecast was for a few 100K units, which it surpassed before the first year. All IBM hardware/software before the PC was proprietary, but the PC had an open-source design, i.e. everything about the hardware and software was freely available to the public; anybody could make computers, parts, or software to integrate freely and compatibly with the PC. It was so successful in IBM's large accounts that IBM allowed its technical sales staff (like me, called SEs, System Engineers) to start supporting the PC.

    Having found no other employment alternative, I decided to start my own consulting business, and a few months later, my first client was IBM. IBM subs were required to be incorporated, so I started my S-Corp, PSSI, Personal Systems Services, Inc. The IBM thing was great while it lasted, which was about 2 years. I was doing the same work I had done before retirement for considerably more pay (1099 vs W-2). The only thing I gave up was 5 weeks of paid vacation since my IBM retirement benefits included continuation of medical benefits. It also helped when I started receiving my well- earned IBM pension and Federal Social Security. However, I soon discovered I was my own accountant, had no paid vacation, and did my own marketing, just like all other SMBs (Small & Medium Businesses) with emphasis on SMALL.

    Finally, I did some year 2000 work, and shortly thereafter agreed with Terry Gilbreath, to become an equal partner in PSSI. Terry had retired from AT&T a few years prior and had a lot of database programming experience, which I lacked. This S-Corp “partnership” gave us both the advantage of having someone to backup each other up if one of us was sick or took vacation. We also could specialize in technical knowledge for areas that were seldom needed by clients, and supplement each other in our specialty areas for all our clients.
