... blame Microsoft !!
My lovely PC, Windows XP Professional, has finally died and is beyond rescusitation. Have been using a borrowed PV, Vista, for a while now so the 'techy gang' could work on my old one in the hopes it could be revived.
Alas - it could not - and I am being forced into the black hole that is 'Windows 10' !
Have spent most of today patiently harvesting pictures and documents from the borrowed Vista onto a pile of CDs - ever hopeful that they will install on Windows 10.
Tomorrow I will disconnect this one and connect up my shiney new tower - already I can see a potential problem - there is no integral card reader to upload photos. Have looked on line for one that works with W10 - but not yet managed to find one. Thanks a bunch Microsoft !!
I am dreading it - but refuse to be beaten by a misbegotten heap of micro chips - however - tomorrow you may hear me screaming - or crying - or both at once !!
My laptop is Windows 10. It is fine apart from Edge as a browser. Good luck
I'd almost guarantee so, Jack. Any cheap USB card reader will do. Once you are comfy with Windoze 10, you'll not look back. The only time W10 irks me is when I'm digging around "under the hood" because nothing is where it was in previous iterations.
I've had Windows 10 for over a year now, not bad.
Can't use old printers though.
I was at my sister's, and wanted to use her old canon printer, but there was no Windows 10 driver. I downloaded an older version, but when I printed the photo, it was very faint
I could have tried the compatibility mode, but thought better not waste any more ink, so gave up...
Another thing I lost was Word 2000. It worked up 'til Windows 8.1.
I just had a massive update. Took hours and after things were not looking too good.
But after a few restarts it seems ok now.
I'm still a happy Linux user :-)
good luck with the switchover!
I do use Windows 8.1 as a virtual if I need Windows however I do install classic Shell http://www.classicshell.net/ to make it look like a earlier Windows with a proper menu button status bar
I'm still locked into Windoze. Only because of Access. If someone made a good equivalent that could import all of the code from VBA I'd be all over it like a rash.
