Yesterdays update didn't work, blue screen popped up saying computer was going to reboot, never did, so powered off and tried again, still nothing. Got to repair screen and tried a repair, didn't work, so back to W7. At least it works perfectly on my computer and I'm familiar with it, don't need shiny and new, need something that works. W7 was the last Windows OS built for desktops, everything after needed to  be programmed for desktops, laptops, tablets, phones etc so I'm not surprised that its the best OS to date. Had a feeling these auto updates would cause big problems, going to be interesting to see how this plays out.
Which update was yesterday? I haven't had one since the 5th when I got the cumulative one that went fine..

Seven is not the best OS to date. 8.1 was better and 10 will be even better after the minor kinks are worked out and all the features are added.

Here is the total update history for Windows 10 since the upgrade:

@ -midnight,
This topic is meant to help those that upgrade to Windows 10.
Letting us know you've again changed your mind and don't intend to upgrade doesn't really help anyone.
Once you upgrade and have questions about Windows 10, you know where to get answers :)

I was asked where the contacts are in the Mail App in Windows 10



Hope this explains it:





To Add a new Contact,
Click on Start > Under P you'll find People. Open that:

You can also right click on People in the All apps section and select Pin To Start
Once that's done, select it and drag it where ever you want.
I put it next to the Mail App

Well so far no issue on my W10 installation and any update. Of course I haven't had many and do have my setting at "schedule reboot"
I have to say however, I'm not comfortable with this direction but I doubt MS will listen to me ;)

Windows 10: How to Protect Your Privacy

I think midnight needs to start using Google to search for answers and do some reading rather than asking every little thought that pops into her head and spamming topics with indecisive thoughts ::)

Personally since upgrading to windows 10 I have found it more responsive than windows 8

Using start 8 also make the location of normal tasks easy to find :)

There is no disrespect meant here. Simply the questions asked, have been answered. That's it that's the fact. :)

I find W10 very smooth and having both W8.1 and W10 side by side with relatively same configuration, it feels like W10 offers more :)

+1, other than a few bugs in the Edge browser relating to Java Script everything else is running great :)

The Bugs in MS EDGE for me are the most frustrating. IF they want to compete with other major Browsers I think Edge needs to be more user friendly and adaptive.
I'm sure it will get better sooner rather then later
