    What You値l Lose When You Upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10


    Today Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 will launch on July 29, and in documentation detailing the upgrade from Windows 7 and 8.1 to the new OS version, the company provides us with info on the features that will be removed when you decide to take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer.

    As we told you a few weeks ago, Microsoft is giving up on Windows Media Center development, so when you upgrade from an OS version that has the Media Center add-on installed, it will be removed by the Windows 10 installer.

    At the same time, the Windows 7 desktop gadgets will be completely deleted too, as this particular feature was unavailable since the introduction of Windows 8.

    All the games that were pre-installed in Windows 7, such as Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts, will be removed when you install Windows 10. The new operating system will come with Candy Crush Saga and Solitaire Collection pre-installed, so new games will be available once the upgrade is completed.

    Hi there

    anybody who wants to keep the old standard W7 classic games including pinball, minesweeper, hearts etc.-- PM me and I'll give you my dropbox link --I stlll think the old W7 spider solitaire etc is much better than the newer one's from the store.

    The games work just fine on W10 build 100130.



    Cheers

    This comes to mind what MS gave warning on Windows 8. I'm a doubtful person when it comes from MS on what one would lose by moving up to WINS 10. So, I'm now thinking it might be best to wait this out....say a year and see what the millions of MS users have to say. I enjoyed WINS 98, XP, and 7 so why rush like marrying the wrong woman, and later come a divorce....like I'll remarry the old WINS 7 gal.

    Well, I can't PM Jimbo45 for the old standard W7 classic games, as I've not yet made five posts, so if he reads this post and can do whatever it is that he would normally do (something about dropbox, which I don't know anything about), that would be great! Thanks.

    I personally myself was a fan of the gadgets from Vista and 7 I thought they were neat. I always enjoyed having them on my desktop. That is why I installed 8GadgetPack for Windows 8/8.1. If anyone is interested here is the link:

    8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10

    It's also in a Windows 10 BETA stage that works, although not all the gadgets function correctly, the author will fix this when the final version of 10 is released. So far its stable for me on my TP 10130 build. So Windows 10 and I still have gadgets, which is cool

    Thanks for the great gadget link. I missed the WIN7 when MS decided we didn't need them. MS seems to be wrong most of the time.

    Agreed. Your welcome sir. I always enjoyed them, and I don't think you need to worry so much about gadget "security flaws" as Microsoft called it, as long as your O/S is up to date and you have good A/V software on your PC. Plus that author included in his bundle the best and safest gadgets and its regularly updated. Great guy for coming up with that.

    That 8GadgetPack and Start8 made my Windows 8.1 experience so much better that it felt like 7 and I was able to let go
