Do you think W7 will last me 'til I go to the nursing home? Will I wake up one morning and GTT won't be there any more?

Guess it depends on how soon you are headed to "the home"!

Here is your answer.  There is not new features that will be added to 7 but security patches will be support to January 2020.  So given your age you will have gone in one door of the nursing home and out the other by the time Win 7 dies. :poke:

Me too Cat, I was giving myself ten years at least if all goes well and the creek don't rise. Guess I'd better get at that bucket list. Now if memory serves, the first thing on that list is learning how to skin a cat.

I put windows 10 on both of my devices that could handle it.

 

My 8.1 PC works great with it.  I think it's a great refinement of windows 8.1.

 

My 7 laptop, things are ok.  I can't use the store function, but I really don't need to.

 

I don't know any other operating systems other than windows.  It didn't take long to get used to 8 and 8.1.  I'll wait for fixes for the bugs I'm encountering.

 

One interesting note.  My PC has neither camera nor microphone.  The laptop does of course.  I went to the local office supply store, Staples.  I asked for a simple stand microphone.  They didn't carry one.  I explained that windows 10 has Cortana, who can talk and listen to you.  I have a PC that can't I can't talk to now.  I ended up taking a regular microphone, the singing kind, and jacking it into the port.  It works fine.  I also bought a gaming head set with a microphone.  Who knows, I might just get into those war games, if I can stop getting headaches, vertigo and nausea.  At least you will be able to hear me puke in another state.  lol

 

I like the windows 10 so far.

My reading is that those who moved to 8/8.1 are really comfortable with the move to 10 and have experience very few problems.  Those moving from 7 to 10 have had more challenges in learning the GUI and with technical problems with the upgrade.  I am OK with 10 but there is so much on the start menu that I don't use.  Clutter gets to me.

If you  do not want to upgrade to windows 10, how do I remove the windows 10 update flag on the task bar? This thing is messing with windows up date on my computer. When I check to see if my updates were installed there is a reference to windows 10 up date failed.

M$ downloads Win 10 in its updates even if you don't want it.  There have been quite a few complaints about it eating up bandwidth and cost folks to go over there download limits.  You should be able to right click it and choose delete to get rid of the icon.

I tried right click on the icon but it does not give a delete option?

Your right, after I posted the wifes computer got it's up dates and sure enough there is the windows 10 icon and it doesn't want to go away.  I'll have to do some research.
