    Dont forget to spend another half a day uninstalling the bloatware and all that spying crap they shove in there.
    Nothing breaks a win 10 faster then multiple microsoft spyware trying to figure out your pooping habits.

    Oh, I installed Libre Office and Firefox, told Cortana to go away, turned off a few other things for privacy sake. I think I'll put Steve Black's hosts file on it which should get rid of 99% of the other junk. Beyond that, I'm not motivated to futz with it too much.

    There Their They're :-)

    Stick with it. It's a bit different, is all. User interfaces change over time with all operating systems, and a change of that magnitude always causes culture shock. (That's about as reasonable as I get, on this subject).

    You'll find other reasons to hate it later (just kidding :-)

    You'll probably find it does several updates today, too. Don't reboot your computer if you need to use it immediately... but do reboot it a few times to make sure it gets them - there's few security updates in all that.

    If you want your start button back SW try this.https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&r...3r0YHOnbZokbpP
    Steer away from Start menu 8!
    Please. If you must jump on me about how baddies and nasties this program is, I was still in the trenches with the IObit garbage and all it's baggage and was retired hurt. !@#$%^&* my system badly. A raw nerve stilld.

    If you don't have a destination, buy a houseboat, you can't get lost and you are always at home.

    Killed the nails before they killed me. 10/02/15 Thanks immensely to AVFers!

    Like Fab said .. it will be alright... in the long run !
    and it seems to just work - like fuss free
    after its updated itself and satisfied itself.. quite a few times !
    and remember when you had to Click Start to turn it off ? now you just click that window - to close it and pull the curtains...
    oh and if you right click the window a more normal looking menu of useful things appears

    it will be all right in the long run

    What is a cat's favourite colour? Purrrrrrrple !
