    Greetings
    I'm a Windows Power User who spends too much time customizing aspects of the OS. Currently using Windows 10. I made an account to post about some obvious shortcomings in the OS that should be properly addressed. Initially here regarding the Start Screen, which is one my favorite Windows features but seems unfinished and neglected.

    G'day Yui714, welcome to the forum

    p.s, we are not Microsoft and have no say about their gear but I agree the wx start buttion feels unloved.

    Hello people,
    Mongo here. Nearly 80 yo now and getting a bit forgetful at times. Likely need a lot of reminders on how to do things.
    I am using a refurbished desktop PC that was originally purchased in 2007. Currently using Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 32 bit. The original motherboard was replaced with an Intel Dual Core CPU. It has 4GB RAM. A couple of months ago it automatically updated itself to W10.
    I used that for a while then decided to revert back to Win7 Ultimate SP1. A computer repair guy did that for me, so i assume it was done correctly.
    The PC has been running fine since the reinstall of Win7.

    I just found this forum today and ho[e to be able to gain knowledge and give back a little when I can. Thank you for allowing me to register.

    Hi Mongo, welcome aboard mate...

    There are some nice things in wx but on an old rig like that you are better off saying no thanks and sticking to w7 drivers... at least until it needs replacement parts and then you can get yourself a cheap laptop.

    P.s, the moral of this story is don't allow Microsoft to make your choice for you? :oops:

    Thanks ussnorway, in other words do not allow MS to update my PC to W10, not now, not later.
