    Windows 7

    Basic information: desktop, start menu, create folders


    I won't move to 10 until I am convinced that certain options will be available. I need my desktop, as in 7. Will there be a start menu with all the options that exist in 7? Can I create folders to store programs, like in 7? There are other questions I have. I haven't found any site here that discusses all the aspects of 7 that we want on 10. Is there a site?

    Desktop: the desktop works well in Win10 - very much like it always has. The most notable changes are to Control Panel (Cpl) - there is a new Settings universal App that handles these functions now. It's still a work in progress, so it will take some time to migrate all Cpl functions to Settings.

    There are some new features - use them if you like them. Most, if not all, previous features work in Win10 too - you might have to bring them out front and center - that's where the Tenforums tutorial section comes in handy. MS promotes the new features front and center in the UI because ... well, they're new.

    Start menu: Yes, you can organize Desktop pgms into folders in your Start menu or the All Users Start menu. Start has gone through a number of iterations and it seems as though MS has settled on one that addresses both Win7 and Win8 users.

    The Start Screen is pretty much what the Pin-to-Start area was on Win7 - only much bigger and tile driven (as opposed to only icons). There are the recent pgm and Frequently used pgm list as well.

    Who are we? Are you nobility?

    There is a plethora of articles and sites that list the differences - but Win10 is in development, so some information might not be current. Microsoft can provide the definitive answers.

    See if any of these links provide answers to your questions:

    How to Upgrade to Windows 10

    Or the someone on Microsoft forums might have answered a specific question:
    MS Community: Windows Insider Program (threads)
    MS Community: Windows Insider Program (wiki)
    MS Community: Windows 10

    Read though TenForums forums and feel free to ask specific questions, members are always glad to answer questions. General non-specific questions are very difficult to answer though ...
