Default Windows 10 vs Windows 7

I guess I'm looking for your experiences if any. I had Windows 7, switched to 10 and now have gone back to 7. I would have used 10, but I kept getting some weird warnings, ghost deletions from my mail program (Outlook) and it so frustrated my tech guy that he suggested going back to Windows's suppose to be supported through 2020....anyone else hear that?

It's explained here pretty well, I think. Mr. Google has lots more info if you are interested but it seems you will be okay til 2020 as your tech guy stated.

I upgraded to Windows 10 on Friday and I can not access my email. I have Windows Live Mail and everything I tried I still can't get it to work. Other than that it's not to bad, I didn't lose anything in the process.

I put the free version of 10 on my laptop that had 7 on it.... I just use it like before.... although I haven't figured everything out.... I'm okay with that but hope to some day get it to LOOK similar to what I want it to. I use yahoo email addresses so don't have to consider what it would do with my outlook. I HATE having to change things every few years... and still have my original PC.... right now... on XP....

Edited to add.... when I first tried to download the free version...after 2 hours... it said unsuccessful..... so I deactivated my AVG anti virus program.... and another 2 hours later.... I had a successful download.

Thank you for the link. I found this link which gave me a better understanding of what would change if I did switch to 10.

We have not upgraded either. DH is a "techie" and he won't do it! He says that 7 will be supported till 2020 also.

We're on Windows 8 and have been getting "reminders" that we have until the end of this month to switch to 10 free, and if we don't like it, within 30 days we can switch back to 8. But if 8 is going to be supported until 2020, I'd just as soon keep 8. Took me too long to figure 8 out
