    I have W-10 Home so I used Option 2..... But it was not clear that it worked.. Time will tell... When I go to my PC and right click on One Drive it says there is nothing there but to be honest I have not had time to test it..... I will be taking some pictures this afternoon and putting them on here, then I will see where they go (I hope)

    Yes it will. Like you, I have no need or use for OneDrive. I don't use the Cloud for anything and probably never will. I uninstalled OneDrive. I use Documents and Pictures just like you do and they work just like Windows 7.



    68 and probably about as dangerous as you are LeeB. LOL

I disable 'WUDO' and kill Cortana, by changing her .dll file to .ddd. *

    * Much has been written about how M$ uses Win-10 to gather information (spy) about your use of the OS.
    It's possible to FIX it, but it takes time and effort. So, disregarding all other info..... if there's something in Win-10 that you don't want, like, or trust, 86 it! Once it's been neutered, it's actually a pretty capable OS.

    If you bought a new house, and it came with bright Pink walls, you most likely would repaint them....Right? Well, it's been my own experience that Win-10 requires some 'Re-Painting'.

    Once I've gone into Win-10 Settings, and shut down everything I don't want, I then install the "Classic Shell" and set that up so that the new install of Win-10 closely resembles Win-7 (or even Win XP)

    The "Revo Un-Installer" is a valuable tool, for removing apps (programs) that you neither want of need. It will also remove folders and registry entries that the Windows uninstaller leaves behind.

    Good Luck, and Happy Computing, Mate!
    This might be a stupid question, but.... Why not just use Windows 7 if you are going to spend hours making Windows10 emulate Windows 7?

    Another possible answer is you can't just go out and buy a new computer with W7 anymore. I held out with W7 for quite a while before I finally gave up the fight and bought a W10 laptop this last spring. I'm used to it now and I get along with it, but there were still some things I liked better in W7.

    It's painful to go back and work on a Windows 7 machine now. It isn't about Windows 10 being a bad product...it's about users not willing to learn something new. Do people complain when they buy a new car and have to adjust to it's feel and dashboard layout?

    PS> There's no rat in giving away Windows 10 to SOME people. It's in everyone's best interest to be on the same platform, from software developers to hardware manufacturers to end users. Do you have the same arguments about Apple giving away versions for free?

    They do if the old one ran better. And W7 did.
