Upgraded my wife's desktop directly from 7 to 10. Smooth as silk. Doesn't mean the same for others, though. It was a home build.

I still run Windows 7 on my old HP, but recently bought a ZenBook with Windows 10. The biggest drawback with running an old OS is that it's no longer officially supported by Microsoft.

7 will be supported until January 14, 2020, that is plenty of time for MS to come out with another system by then, I still use 7 and many people and businesses that I know about and see in the Philippines even still use XP without having any issues, I think updates are a sham to get us to buy new operating systems, a good virus protector should keep us safe for the most part, no matter what operating system we run.

We didn't pay a single penny when we upgraded three laptops and a desktop.

IIRC, MS said Windows 10 is the last version. From now on it's just updates. So I wonder if they plan on charging for updates if that is true.

I doubt they will ever charge home users. Big business has to pay a subscription to use the Enterprise version of 10.

Your post is confusing. You updated Windows 10 to Window 10? Do you mean 7 to 10?

It should have kept the same password. Did you try it?

There's nothing wrong with you. Your computer apparently hates you, though.

Have you tried logging with no password?

But there are a lot of important files on my computer, I can't lose them.
