    Win10 installed but is it? Disk Manager shows Win 7?


    Hi:

    I upgraded Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro a few months ago. My desktop looks "similar" to Win 10. Or am I confused? All works fine. This is a Lenovo T530 laptop. "Settings" shows Win 10 Pro is activated. The Seven Forums System Info tool shows OS is Win 10.

    But the desktop has a "Computer" icon not "My PC" like another Win 10 Computer here. Somehow the desktop looks a hybrid of Win 7/10. I know, I must be losing it.

    I don't recall my upgrade procedure except that I used a Win 10 iso from Microsoft Creator Tool. I've done a number of Win 10 upgrades but perhaps I'm losing my bearings (or worse).

    I just looked at my HDD structure (see below). Would someone interpret these partitions for me? Why Win 7?

    Thx awfully - dizmayed

    My Disk Management only shows - OS (C: ) there. No Windows label.

    The volume label is user defined and on an upgrade Windows 10 will not change the volume label that was there before.
