    One thing I'll miss with the upgrade is Bing Desktop. I've had this since it's inception on Win7. I don't need most of it's functions because they're already integrated with apps on Win8 and 10, but I like the four wallpapers(Bing picture of the day, Animal, Scenery, Other) that can automatically set & changed. I have tried installing it on 10 but they haven't made it compatible(yet???). Anyone else use it too?

    Won't miss WMC nor Gadgets and already got W7 Games migrated from my W7 installation.

    Couldn't live without Free Cell! My record so far is 179 straight allowing only one take back at any given time. Shows how busy I ain't!

    Why do you need the Windows 7 Freecell? W10 comes with The Games collection that includes Freecell.

    I don't know about others, albeit for some reason (beyond my grasp) I just like the look and feel of Win 7 card games. . .

    I must admit I hadn't really looked closely at the games app in W10.

    But have to agree with Lee that I also like the W7 games format and operation.

    And truth is don't use apps much. Although different story on my iPhone.

    Currently I dual-boot - Win7 Pro 64-bit (OEM) on one drive and WinXP Pro on another drive (using EasyBCD)
    I have a spare drive and what I was planning on doing was clone my Win7 to it and then do a free Win10 upgrade on that cloned drive.
    I would "test out" Win10 to see if I liked it while still using the Win7 on the other drive.
    Because the cloned Win7 would have its license upgraded to a Win10 license, would I have any problems using the Win7 on the original drive?

    I already found a new "toy" I like on build 10130... 3D Builder!!! I am totally un-artistic but... It's fun.
    I like that too, just don't quite have the hang of it yet. My avatar is the best 3d builder one so far
