    You can see a lot of the software I have gotten installed on the Rocketdock bar.

    Dual booting is really the way to go, it works just as it would if it was the only OS, and you always have your original OS to fall back on.

    A lot of my installed software, i.e. all of the games ran without being reinstalled.
    I just created a link in Windows 10 and they ran.

    Ditto here. At home running a dual boot and spend most of time on 10. At my computer club I installed it on a spare SSD. Both Win10 installations are running well with no serious/major problems.

    Mike,

    "You can see a lot of the software I have gotten installed on the Rocketdock bar."

    Does this really work on Windows 10 without any problems?

    thanks

    Well ... you WILL have a problem, this time. You will NOT be able to go back to Win8 (or Win7, if you were running that) after the Win10 TP is over. MS provided no way to "restore" your previous OS version to the way it was.

    You would have to do a clean install of your prior version and then, reinstall all your apps from scratch.

    While that is technically correct, MS doesn't provide a way to restore to your previous OS, there are a few threads here that talk about paid and free ways to image and do just that. Yes, most of them are a bit of a PITA, but they seem to work. Oddly most of the imaging ways to do it seem easier and less confusing to do than trying to just restore to the 'out of box' setup the computers came with.

    If you have an image backup, you can go back to 7 or 8 in 15 to 30mins. I tried it myself. I upgraded a cloned copy of win 7 to win 10tp. And then I restored it back to win 7 after testing Win 10 without any hiccups. I did both the upgrade and restoration back to 7 within 30mins.







    Here's the screenshot of upgraded win 7. All my installed programs before the upgrade are intact including the wallpaper.













    MS will not tell you exactly what to do before you upgrade but it is all but common sense to create a back up of your system first before doing anything with your existing OS in case there was a problem in the upgrade process or if win 10 turns out to be buggy or does not agree with your hardware.





    Cheers!
