Beginning to like win10, don't know how often I will use them but am finding more and more neat features that aren't in win7.

The search bar is definitely greatly improved, I was never that impressed with the win 7 search bar.

Just got done setting up my pop3 acct in the mail app and was surprised that all I had to enter was my pop 3 email address and apparently it was able to get all the other settings from the mail server. Had to manually enter them in Windows Live Mail.

I guess by waiting a couple of years they got a lot of the bugs out but it did cost me $140, could have got oem for $100 but I may build a new computer someday and will be able to move the full retail version to it.

Learned that too. Some of them you'll use and then if you ever visit Win7 and try to do them there, ya can't.

Few weeks ago my wife's girl friend brought her Macbook over for me to look at. She was having problems getting the charger to reliably connect to it (4 pins with magnetic grabber to hold the pins of the charger to the Macbook). She thought the computer was dead and wanted files recovered from the hard drive. Didn't need to do that. But I did backup her files. Mac Apps work great, as good as those now in Win10 and many of them more user intuitive and friendly. But navigating the Mac file system is gawd awful. The tools for that haven't changed all that much since the first modern Mac. Win10 is way ahead in file management tools.

Id say thats because you dont use one all the time. I use windows and mac everyday. If you cant figure something out its on the world wide web. Agree with travelin. I will keep my mac and I will never have another Windows computer.

My wife's latest laptop came with 10 and she did not like it at all. Because of her in home business she knows a computer Guru she calls when there is a problem. He was able to tweak some things so that it works like 7.
Yes, she pays well for his service, but he comes to the house and works his magic. :)

Yes that was required when Win10 first came out. Fortunately I had cloned our Win7 hard drives and then did the Win10 free upgrade on the clones. We stayed on Win7 until MS brought back deleted features and changed other defaults back until Win10 behaved more like Win7. Win10 has evolved since and the user experience now is even better than Win7.

I use both enough to know how the file management tools work. And yes I did look stuff up on the web, because it was unbelievable to me how many steps were needed to do stuff in file management. In Windows most of what I need to do was bulk drag and drop of whole directories in a single motion. Not possible in IOS. Required multiple operations. Detailed example upon request.
