I wrote a few months ago about having a play with Windows 10 (here).
I’m visiting family today, catching up on all the Windows desktop (and mobile phone) support that I missed while I was away.
I purposely postponed the Windows 10 update on the desktops before I went away, but now I’m back I did the first of them.
The update itself was fine, but it did take a long time. Nothing really to write home about.
I’ve installed the latest version of Classic Shell on the machine, so the experience is similar to what they had before, Windows 8.1 and Classic Shell, which felt like Windows 7. 🙂
I’ve also switched out their shortcuts from Edge (Spartan) to Internet Explorer 11. They already use a combination of IE, Firefox and Chrome, so I didn’t want to add another thing into the mix. Also, the nephews use the Java plugin for some web-based games, so it is easier to leave them with IE for the time being. Maybe I will introduce Edge later…
So all in all, the user experience is pretty much unchanged compared to what they had before. I guess I will see how many calls Captain Support gets over the coming weeks! 🙂
