Ok, so getting Windows 10 free for 7 and 8 user’s comes to an end fairly soon. What should you do??
Here at Angels PC Clinic, we’ve been putting 10 onto all our new computers and 2nd user one’s. Should we be? Yes!!!!
The way we’ve been doing it is not by using the built-in upgrade button but by installing a fresh clean copy of 10. If you imagine bringing all that baggage with you from say 7, that’s a lot to ask of Windows 10.
So many people visit the shop and ask this question “What do you think of Windows 10”. In a nutshell, it’s good, would I recommend they update it themselves? Not necessarily.
Like we always say, BACK UP before doing anything like this, just in case. And if you’ve backed up then why not do a fresh clean install of Windows 10? Makes so much more sense.
If you want to go the route that we advocate but don’t want to attempt this yourself, then we can offer to do this for you. The only possible downside to this is that any software previously installed will need to be reinstalled ie Microsoft Office, Printer software.
And on one other note, for those of you that have seen Windows 10 and are not keen on the Start Menu, this can easily be changed to look like the useful 7 version but with the option of still having the new one there also.
And by the way, if you like Windows 7, Microsoft are still supporting this until January 2020 and Windows 8 until January 2023.
Any questions please feel free to contact us.
Always here to help!! 🙂
