    windows 8.1

    upgrade from windows 7 ultimate


    I upgraded my laptop with 8.1 to 10 and I ended up with all programs recognized and working. Hard to believe.
    All I did after the upgrade is download and install English (US) package to change interface language.
    Will it be the same when upgrading from windows 7 ultimate?
    where should I begin? search microsoft for upgrade to windows 10?
    many thanks

    I did the automatic upgrade from Win7 Ult. to Win10 Pro, no issues except for a couple of old programs but I've kept a Win7 Home computer for other needs.

    But then I have kept a WinXP computer with 5.25" and 3.5" floppy drives [actually a combination drive] and a Zip250 drive for when a client needs data transferred to more modern computers. The issue with the older drives is having a BIOS that supports them.

    thank you
    I don't intend to keep windows 7 and as I see it my only problem will be to set back the interface language to English (US)
