    Where is "COMPUTER"


    Windows downloaded and installed 10 on my computer that has been 7 without permission much to my surprise. One of my programs won't run and I've been told it should. I tried to reinstall it in 10 to see if that would work but it didn't auto load like it does in 7 and I can't find what used to be "COMPUTER" so I can manually do SETUP. I'm 71 and not quick like many of you young people so I'd appreciate some guidance. Thank you, Gregg

    "Computer" is now called This PC.

    In the search box next to the Start button, type this pc > press Enter key.

    The screenshot below will be similar to what you will see...................

    Hope that answers your question.

    I guess I am really ignorant on this 10 thing. I don't see a start button. Do you mean where it says ASK ME ANYTHING

    The "ask me anything" is your search box.
    Click inside the box and it will turn white.
    You can then type this pc > press Enter.
