    anyone upgrade to Windows 10 yet? If so what are your first impressions? I like it. it's a lot more clean and simple than Windows 8 for sure. My only issue with it so far is that I can no longer utilize the two-finger touchpad scrolling on my laptop. kind of a big issue for me cause that was my primary navigating method. hope this issue isn't permanent and they fix it soon. anyone else have this problem with the touchpad scrolling? there a way to reactivate it?

    That's a driver issue, not a problem with Windows 10. Google "windows 10 touchpad scrolling [computer model]" and I'm sure you'll be able to find the fix, or at least an in-depth explanation.


    No. Windows 10 is not free. Microsoft is allowing people with Windows 7 SP 1 or Windows 8.1 to upgrade for free. There's a fine line there.

    If you have a Windows 7 or 8 machine, you should have a Windows logo icon in your notification tray. Click it and you can reserve your copy. If you have one and don't see that icon, UPDATE WINDOWS AND ALLOW THE UPDATES TO INSTALL. Not only is your computer missing critical updates that potentially expose you to risk, you're also cheating yourself out of a free upgrade. :smile:

    yes it is free. you should have gotten a notification a couple months back on your laptop. look by the bottom right corner of your screen. if you see a windows icon there hover over it and it will say "Get Windows 10", then click it and follow the instructions.

    ^ didn't take too long. cant say exactly how long it took tho cause I went downstairs to make breakfast when it was at like 25-30%, and by the time I came back it was done. probably took like 40 mins give or take a few.

    I cant say cause I've actually never used Windows 7. I just got a new laptop like 3 months ago, and the last computer I had was from like 2005 :lol:. I've heard plenty of people say that they hated Windows 8 and liked 7 better. I personally liked W8 tho. but I still think W10 is a big improvement.

    I love Windows 7. It's really the end all, be all OS for me.

    However, 10 looks interesting. Is it as smooth and minimalist as 7?

    I had that problem when I tried last night.  You may have a corrupt Win 10 install folder like I did.

    Check your Windows update history and see if there's a failed Win 10 update with error code 80240020.  If you have that error... follow these steps.

    Coming from Win 7 to 10 so far its confusing. I might wait a few more months.
