My tech guy had recommended to me to install the new Microsoft platform Windows 10. I tried several times on Thursday without success. He did it by remote Thursday evening and I finished the task early Friday morning. It took less than two nanoseconds to realize what a disaster it was. Yahoo would not install as my home page, my list of bookmarks had disappeared, there were no commands when I right clicked on my mouse (copy, past, delete, etc.) and the only game I play online (a lot) is Solitaire. It wound up in an app with hundreds of other games you could not play unless you had a Microsoft account to log in with. I frantically called my guy who finally returned my call. You can recover your old Windows within the first thirty days. After that you’re stuck. Doing a normal system restore point won’t work because it won’t allow it.
DW has been visiting her dad since Thursday morning and she’s coming home today. She knows even less than I do about computers. She checks her e-mail once in a while but basically she uses IE to check her Facebook page to keep in touch with her family, which are scattered around the country. If she had to log in every time she used it she would be very unhappy. You wouldn’t want to see her when she’s unhappy. I came back from a Friday lunch date over clam chowder with my fishing partner and my guy had my machine back to normal.
Everything is touted as “new” and “improved.” Such is not always the case.
