Six Reasons to Switch to Windows 10

I did not switch from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Let’s face it, it sucked. I tied it on a coworker’s computer and my reaction was “No way”. Going from Windows 7 to Windows 10 was not an active choice but came with a newer laptop. It happened! Oh no! Wait, it wasn’t that bad. It took a little getting used to and I had to spend time “exploring”; and I’m not done with my exploring; but it really is working out very well. So, here are some things that might help with making the leap from Windows 7 to Windows 10:

  1. If you switch by July 29th, 2016 it is still free.1462768827_obbb9hkcuc4fk1jnqkp824irm1Windows-10-Updtae
  2. Switching is a simple upgrade rather that a full blown installation so all your files and documents will stay right where they are now.
  3. Transitioning from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is much easier than the transition from Windows 7 to Windows 8. (see #2)
  4. The start menu has been brought back in Windows 10 with a different look including simplified icon that are still recognizable. You also have the familiar software lists and files.
  5. Windows 10’s start menu now includes “Live Tiles”. Live Tiles are small square interactive tiles where you can load apps that you use frequently so that they are a touch away. I keep a current weather app there so I can check temperatures.
  6. Printers – I love this. I attached my printer to the computer and Windows 10 searched the net, downloaded and installed the program for my printer in seconds. I was printing in under 5 minutes. No disk needed and no time consuming download.

I am having no difficulty navigating the Windows 10 operating system. I find that I can easily learn what I need as I go along. My work is getting done and as I learn new things I am finding that the Windows 10 operating systems is a very useful tool. I really don’t miss Windows 7 at all.
