New computer and with Windows 10, coming up.

In Ireland, but born Bucks.
My 12 year computer has almost given up the ghost. So I'll be shopping tomorrow for a new one. :rolleyes:

Also, as Windows 7 will not be supported by Microsoft form the 14th of January 2020, with no updates or security of any kind. (There are extensions for MS support, but only within an organization, for a further 3 years, I'm led to believe, but for a fee).

It's time to for me to work out Windows 10 when I get my new computer with a two week trial. Then I'll have to pay for Win10 to be added/downloaded on a permanent basis.

With a great deal of hindsight, I should have got Win10 for free, when it was offered in 2015.

All I can hope for is an easy transition. I'm far from a techy person, regarding computers. Just hope all instructions are in idiot language.:eek::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

If you don't hear from me for a couple of weeks, you'll know why.

Toodles for now.
