    I updated my laptop from Win 7 to Win 10. I barely use it anymore but figured that if i have it then i might as well. It took almost 3 hours just for the update then i still need to tweak a few things. The upside is that it matches my desktop again.

    I wonder if it ate ate the pics and music i have in there. I asked it nicely to not do that

    Good luck. About this time last year I did the same. For me it was painless.

    I need to do this to. I’m still on Vista and my monitor is caput.

    There you go making plans. You could be here for a good while yet.

    There is that. A bit of search and discover. Things are moved about. I didn't want to upgrade, but had to. Security and functionality.

    The other benefit musically is that 10 works better with my interface. I can jam and record direct to the computer. My Audacity (free) program works better.

    I already have on my desktop but haven't really had to dig into it much. I found everything though. I did have to let it repopulate the media player. It likes Groove Music player but I'm so used to WMP I didn't feel like messing a new one

    That's different. If she's with you, she's a saint and a keeper. Keep her well.

    Was it free or did you have to pay for the update?

    I keep toying with getting something to record with but so far that's all I've done. I guess I'd need external mics
    of some sort as well maybe ?

    I went to the website and it said it was $139. Did I wait too long to get the free version?

    I just got it today. It didn't ask for a credit card number or anything. Did you go to MS ? I had seen something a couple days ago that you could get a free download so i tried it. So far so good. I wonder if maybe you looked at a pro version or something ?
