    Windows 11 is actually just a rumor.

    During the May 2015 Microsoft Ignite conference, Jerry Nixon confirmed that Windows 10 will be the “last version” of the operating system that Microsoft releases. Microsoft clarified later by saying that “Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner.”

    Regards,
    Steve

    I have reported this before, but it definitely bears repeating. A friend of mine is high up in a particular Computer company. He told everyone that if you purchase anew computer with Windows 10 preloaded, you should not have any problems. He actually likes it. But, NEVER, NEVER upload 10 into your current computer. Your current system will be supported for a long time and the upload will cause you difficulties - either right from the start or not too far down the road. But, I repeat, if you purchase a new computer with 10 preloaded, you should not have any problems.

    My computer "go to guy" says "DO NOT INSTALL 10" So I am sticking with my 7......interesting to read about all the problems with the 10.

    Yes, I've tried to download a number of times but it does not finish. Tells me there is an unknown error and that is it. Plenty of memory, so it puzzles me.

    I will actually deviate from klswift's response here. There is no more risk with upgrading to Windows 10 on a current PC than downloading an update to your existing Operating System. I have done this upgrade on over 40 computers already and not a single one has issues after install (other than users getting used to the new layout or minor setbacks like jitkaau referenced).

    In your case, it most likely driver issues. That would require unplugging everything except power cord, rebooting the machine and going straight into the Windows 10 install/download.

    My tech advised to wait at least 6 months before downloading Windows 10. I have an email friend in Australia who was also given that advice by her tech. I use Windows 8 on both desktop and laptop and have had no problems with it.

    I'm not upgrading until I have to. I have Windows 7 now and it's just fine. BTW if you want to get a computer with Windows 7 or 8 on it, CDW might be able to help you. When the infamous VISTA was around, I ordered 2 computers from them and had them downgraded to XP. I was so glad I did.

    I downloaded Windows 10 in spite of the warning from my teenager. So far I like it better than the last Windows. They have included a way to block the touchpad on my laptop. So no more accidents from hitting the touchpad with the palm of my hand. There are things I haven't figured out yet. I was returning to the start up screen each time I wanted to surf around the internet, eventually I figured out how to save favorites to my task bar so it helps. But I am still keeping my fingers crossed.

    I sticking with Windows 7. Dh bought a laptop a few years back that had Vista on it. More problems than it was worth so he sold it to a guy who wanted a newer computer with Vista. DH got what he paid for it. Then couple years ago DH buys me a laptop with but since he purchased it in his name instead of allowing me to pick out my own, I had the worst time always trying to log on. It only wanted to recognize him and he couldn't remember the password. It was a mess. I took it to the office for my broker who is tech savvy to help. Only time I can use it is if I go to the office. Dh has now taken it over and downloaded Windows 10 and is having trouble with it. I told him I want no tech devices for Christmas unless I'm with him. With the laptop he got a tablet also (free). Which is a pain. When I got my Samsung, we got 2 for one plus a tablet free. Unless my name is on as primary user, it won't recognize me. I'm sticking with Windows 7.

    I did try Windows 10 for a short time, but in less than a week did the download back to Windows 7, which is where I'm staying. My laptop works fine, and for the amount of work I use it for, this one should last awhile yet. I do have a desktop upstairs, haven't used it since getting it back from the shop a few years ago (had some problems with an antivirus software that was on it). I like my laptop too well to bring the old one out of retirement!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
