    hihi. In my country, the best way to solve the problem is "google" it! By searching, find the right solution always better than calling for help!

    Here too, it's not only noun but a verb too.

    Hi there

    Have you ever heard of TESTING !!!!

    Sometimes also new drivers for an OS aren't immediately available when the OS is released --how could they be -- there's probably more varieties of hardware out there than nr of stars in The Milky Way. Upgading is sometimes the only way to check things still work.

    I've often done a clean install and found things like internal SD card readers or odd printers don't work plus other hardware whereas an upgrade usually keeps things working.

    Once the OS has been out for a decent while and drivers become more regularly available then doing a clean install is definitely OK and the preferred method.

    You can't generalize these situations - it's not always 100% one or the other.

    Cheers

    Tying OS to HW age is not very economical way. I for instance can't afford to by whole kitten caboodle every couple of years. Always do some upgrades, a bit of HW, a bit of SW like OS and staying pretty current painlessly. Either, OS or HW, can get obsolete in between changes.

    I cannot get used to the start menu interface either , thats a killer for me . I also noticed that many things i am very familiar with and know how to use effectively on 7 does not work on 10 and i just don't have the patience to start over with all "brinks" great tutorials .

    Not ruling out Win 10 down the line but it would have to change in a very big way and i don't think that will ever happen. As expected many love Win 10 and many don't , thats the way life goes.
    What's wrong with being on a Windows 10 forum while running Windows 7? I'm on Vista, but I still participate in all four of these Windows forums, and a Linux one. Nothing worng with that.

    But honestly, how much can you really contribute to helping anyone with Win10 issues?

    However, Google search needs a little work, when I search for something it marks out some of my search terms which can be very annoying. Google also brings up stuff you didn't even search for. Especially when you are looking up medical stuff.

    Search engines are far from perfect but heck.. they only have 2billion lines of code to test.

    That's not what I meant. Testing and playing around are fine, but as far as work is concerned, if I have a working machine which does its job, I will keep it running under whatever OS it has and not try to "upgrade" the OS there. I will get the new OS when I replace that machine with a new one.

    He may not be able to help, Jeff, but he sure can learn; just not hands on.
