    Is anyone doing swagenger hunt? I can't figure out the first clue about the pioneer cookbook. I must be stupid today. :)

    SEnglish - We are thinking about rolling my laptop back to Windows 7. We cloned my hard drive before installing Windows 10. I should only lose a months worth of data and most of that I can backup before we do anything. While I am a Windows everything girl (Windows (8) phone, laptop (10 right now) and Zune), am I not happy with 10 at all.

    ASCHERER - I use a Windows 10 computer for work (at home), and have learned the hard way that I need to turn it on *at least* an hour before my work shift starts to avoid being late signing in. While I like Windows 10 much more than Windows 8, this forced update thing can certainly be problematic for those of us with schedules to keep.

    From what we read online, the anniversary update is being "trickled out" to consumers, so it might take a while to get to all of us. A friend got this update last week, and her computer worked on it for hours and hours. She finally had to turn it off, and then it updated much more quickly the next day (*only* an hour).

    This is for anyone that upgraded to Windows 10. Windows pushed out a massive upgrade Monday evening/Tuesday morning. It only took an hour to finish the upgrade on my laptop. DH said this is the first anniversary date of Windows 10 and that is why it is so large and long. Plan accordingly. It changed a lot and I am still finding things messed up.
