I updated when I purchased a new computer and had some learning curves to maneuver initially, but find it is a good system overall.

Something else, I would strongly recommend a Full Back Up of your computer before updating to Windows 10.  I am so glad I did.  My back up (which is on an external drive) was a lifesaver!

Two new Notebooks with W10 installed. Running smoothly.

Use Edge exclusively. Edge plus Windows provided security are going to be adequate for my security needs.

The greatest work efficiency benefit will be when you sync Cortana to your cell.

I have no issues.  I now use antivirus provided by our service provider. 

The Edge is the browser I use although there are few companies I do business that is way way behind....

Been with Win 10 for 1 year. It works fine here. Also have a back up drive.

My computer updated when I wasn't looking. I hate this. I should be able to decide for myself when I want to update and not have my computer do it for me when I'm not paying attention. I'm a big girl and I can make these kind of decisions. 

Now with that being said...I don't mind windows 10 overall. Except I am finding some sites that aren't compatible with it. I'm sure that soon these sites will have to get compatible since so many people are being forced into using windows 10.

Hi Marie - I updated early and the only reason I did was because I hated 8.1. 10 was good at first, but has gotten buggier and slower as time has passed, and the automatic updates - that appear when you really don't want them to and can't be delayed - are really annoying.

Marie Story Yes I did upgrade to Windows 10 when it first came out. I had a big glitch which resulted in having to do a major repair reinstall.

There was also a major issue with connecting a printer to a parallel port. Windows 10 would recognize the port. Windows has since resolved this issue.

No recent problems and it is working fine.

I hate Windows 10.  Total invasion of privacy.  Non-intuitive.  Horrible.

  I bought a Windows 7 clean install disk for my new computer to scrub Windows 10.

If I am forced by Microsoft to move to Windows 10, I will switch to Apple Mac.
