Windows 10

I just installed (upgraded) to Windows 10 on my desktop. So far everything seems to work just fine. Cortana is a nice addition and the new menu button works well with both applications and apps listed and a icon section for the apps. Mostly the desktop looks the same. Upgrade was simple and automatic via a download.

I'm in no hurry to get it. One day when I have nothing better to do, I'll upgrade.

I'm currently running the last pre-RTM build. Will probably do the upgrade next week. No hurry. And I've got one laptop on 8.1 that I'll be upgrading to test some of our applications on that. But what I really want is the next version of Server. But for that, we have to wait until next year.

Cortana is not available to me. No idea how to get it.
And I don't think I'll get Windows 10 on my tablet, I'm not brave enough (and there simply is no new replacement device if I do brick it).

On a Windows 10 system right click on the taskbar. There is a new Cortana entry on the taskbar menu that turns her on or off. A portion of the taskbar is devoted to Cortana input. If you don't have a microphone you will need to type in the request.

Have done a laptop, netbook and convertible tablet - no problems except the time it takes. Have three more to go - wish they would have offered dvd installs :-) not that dvds would have been economical.

You can use the windows media creation tool to download and create a dvd or usb to install from DVD or USB. Lots of discussion in this longer thread:

I upgraded my desktop and my Surface Pro tablet. Both went without a hitch.

Cortana doesn't seem to be available in Canada though.

For those looking for a good open ebook reader, check out FICTION BOOK READER in the Windows store. It's a version of, naturally, fbReader for win8 and above that works very nicely in Win10. I just pointed it at the Calibre library and let it run.
Nice library interface.

Perhaps so, eh! I think Canada might require that a French version be offered as well as English, er Canadian.

It's not available in Dutch either (US version of Windows with Dutch localization and English language).

I upgraded and the process went seamlessly.

However, my touchpad on my laptop now needs 2 [count'em, 2!!] fingers to scroll. And my touchpad has a place on the side where I used to be able to scroll with single finger efficiency.

It is a pain in the finger. I wouldn't have thought so, but it really is. Enough so that I'm thinking of getting a wireless mouse or trackball or something...

I'm doing my new Surface 3 tonight. I must be mad starting it at 10 past Midnight but I know I won't sleep thinking about this so while its peaceful and quiet I'm going to give it a go. It's a brand new device with nothing on it yet, if it doesn't go smoothly at this point when would it
