    Win 7

    I am so close to converting to windows 10...


    I tested it out and its very fluid and smooth. Drivers work perfectly with my PC(Better than windows 7, surprisingly).
    I need to get a few things worked out before I can convert and I think you guys can definitely help me with it.

    1. How can I make every program I have run as administrator and basically not worry about administrator issues.
    2. Is it possible I can make a lite version of Windows 10 with all the software I don't need stripped away.


    Thank You

    Why do you need the programs to run as administrator? Most of the time that is not necessary.

    You can uninstall most of the UWP apps in the menu easily enough but there are some that you cannot uninstall. Some like calculator are considered a part of the OS. You right click on the app you want to remove and select uninstall.

    I find Windows 10 gives few problems and is a better performer than Windows 7 was. Once you have upgraded from 7, you might want to consider doing a clean install as that will leave you with a cleaner system with less chance of things going wrong. After you have done the upgrade install, your cd key will be associated with your hardware so when you clean install, you can skip the times when it asks for the key and it should activate itself.

    I actually wanna strip down the iso, so i can remove things i dont really need because this will be installed in a music studio and the slimmer it is, the better
