    You could use Win 7 as your default working OS and load Win 10 in virtual or try using Linux Mint 17.2 and see if covers your needs.

    Thank you, GEWB. My family has suggested Linux in various forms as well. I am so very angry with Win 10. I have upgraded to what is the current "final" version on this machine. I can see myself exploring Win 10 for now, however, I believe that I'll buy another machine that has a Win 7 OS and hang on to it with both hands. I know that several of the problems that I currently have with my docs may still need to be corrected when I download my docs from my back up external hard drive, but at least it will be with the more open and intuitive Win 7 OS. As you said in an earlier post, there are simply so many things in Win 10 (xbox, camera, etc., etc., etc.) that I do wish for in an OS. Again, thank you. In the opinion of a large majority of the computer owning and using population, there is a real need and use for a desktop OS. Win 7 does a great job of filling that need.

Win7 to Win10 Possibilities?
Anyone exploring the possibilities of moving from Win7 to Win10 upon release. Anyone with experience with Win10 can share insights for Win7 users - probably done before, but haven't seen much lately (mainly just Win8 to Win10). Thanks gumboman
