How was Windows 10 Installed on your System?

  1. It was pre-installed with the system a.k.a. OEM.

  2. I built my own system and installed Windows 10

  3. I upgraded from a previous Windows version (Includes Upgrade Assistant/ISO/other install methods)

  4. I was forced to upgrade to Windows 10 from a previous version (includes GWX , or unsupported HW.

  5. I have only used Windows 10 at a friends, a family member, at school, or a work system.

    I will 100% agree it was my choice and I also created a bootable DVD and did a clean install.

    All of my Windows 10 computers are unplugged and sitting on a shelf until I decide what I want to do with Windows 10.

    Perhaps a family member may need one.

    Ha ha!, I dont cycle much, :cool: however, I just came back from driving 4,100 mile vacation :D in south west U.S. so/sore, I certainly feel like I have ridden my butt, thighs, lower back, shoulders off!,:eek: over last 12 days. Getting to old for that amount tension of driving in that amount of time. :confused:

    I did my recent and very long ! W10 update in motel in Flagstaff. Took and hour or more. All appears to be working ok, except before, and after update, Edge will not quit/close, but that is subject of another thread I started.

    My wife thinks rybo is good name for a dog food. Go figure o_O

    System info is one of the best view in our PC. I just follow these steps to get the system info, open start menu-> search system info. After checking the system I have got the basic info like processor type and speed, system type, windows activity status etc. I must say the geekermag site helped me so much find out the best info on Windows 10. Or you can use the search box to find the system info.

    First post and you have to mention somewhere else. Are you here solely for promoting that site?

    It's a moot point, Cliff.
    Call me old fashioned, but, I see many guys on forums (this one also), when helping,merely giving a link to another site, where the answer has been dealt with in detail.

    I prefer, when possible, if there is such a link, to transcribe it into my own words and post it.
    My view, right or wrong, is that users needing help, do not come on a forum to be redirected to another.

    Investigation shows the site referred to is pretty new. Nothing innovative though (same old)

    Thx, I typed that in and go system info, however, I accidentally type infor instead of info, so Edge opened-- I guess to search for 'system infor' and now, once again, I cannot quite/close the Edge app/program.

    I can minimise it. Oh wait, I just expanded again and it would except no cursor clicks, however, it did close/quit. Yeah!! So never mind. As long as it closes/quits, im not concerned/distubred rybo

    If it just won't work for you, scroll down the start menu to "Windows Administrative Tools"", and then select "System Information"

    You misunderstand. I have no problem getting to system info. My issue with Edge not closing/quitting appears to have resolved itself. That Edge doesnt function beyond closing/quitting is ok with me. I dont care to use it at all. At least not at this time. Thx Rybo

    I cannot agree, it's a disaster, let me have windows 7 back. I am loosing saved documents, scanned documents, I cannot access the "My computer" section that was easily found on Windows 7. I would pay someone to rid me of this awful windows 10

    A lot of things we used to do are still there, most on the Right-click of the Start button such as System, Disk Management, Device Manager, etc. The latest version, CU Version 1703, changed Control Panel to Settings, just have to look around a bit more to find what is needed. Command Prompt was changed to PowerShell. I usually need quicker access to things [phone support of clients] so I put Control in the Search box, clicked on Control Panel and it opened, while still open I right-clicked and chose Pin to Taskbar, icon always there after closing it. One caveat: doing too many things that way will quickly fill the Taskbar.
