Windows 10 – At Home

General Comments Off on Windows 10 – At Home

Are you a dyed-in-the-wool Windows 7 user? Windows 7 was good, a welcome relief from what became the Vista saga, but it was never going to be the best ever Windows operating system. No Windows operating system has ever been the best ever but it might have made it to ‘best to date’. Well, there […]

I have been out of the loop for a while due to health issues, but I am back for a while at least, and would like to put my weight behind the core of this article. I was so against tiles in Windows 8 and not without reason. They were HORRID AND UNRELIABLE. My […]

There are webpages which proclaim best this and best that and this one deals with email clients.  There is no ‘best’. It is all down to whatever suits you. I grew up on Windows Outlook Express, am used to the setup, general feel etc, and am not dumb enough to dislike Microsoft and have […]

Apps  Tagged Comments Off on No native Media or DVD playback? In Windows 10?

There are apps.. .. which look like they might, but to me, they are not very good. There is a function called ‘Film and TV’ but it looks primitive at best. There are rumours that Microsoft may produce a replacement for Media Center, but the article I read about the demise of Media Center did […]

General  Tagged Comments Off on Ready for 10? You should be..

In general: Windows 10 is ok, better than ok actually. My Netbook was one stodgy, slow Windows 7 performer, but now it boots quicker, resumes quicker, just seems like a new machine. It will never be a top performer, but I am impressed by how Windows 10 works on it. It has shown just how […]

Coming to a notification area near you: It’s unobtrusive and you can’t click on it by accident and start the Windows 10 upgrade immediately because that is NOT how it works. Can you spot the ‘extra’ which appeared on my NA? Yes, it is the Windows 8/10 logo, and this is what it looks like […]
