if you do the upgrade within windows 7 the install wizard will notify you of any incompatible programs first before proceeding with the upgrade. i upgraded an old W7 PC on the weekend because of the zero day vulnerability found in windows 7Well my curiosity is peaked. I've been tweaking my W10 system for a week and like/dislike some things. I have 2-3 W7 systems I could use to upgrade gratis but was going to buy a key for this fresh install.
Darkbreeze, any negatives to upgrading from a W7? I didn't think of doing that and then doing a clean install. Obviously I want a fresh registry. Also want to install only a few programs, to begin with. AFAIK the upgrade would bring all those old program installs with it.
On another note I've seen when I click on a folder, W10 opens the parent folder. Odd. Also hoping W10 doesn't auto install any downloaded drivers unless I want it to. But I especially like that search seems fixed. Also they finally finally gave users a solution for long file names.
once it is upgraded and activated you can do a fresh install of windows 10 and once you are back online it will automatically reactivate without entering a key (as long as your key was legit)
and there is a way to disable automatic driver install in windows 10
