Solved Reconfigure Windows required after upgrading from 7 to 10?

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Pentium D 925
It looks like I will be upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I personalized my current Windows 7--for instance I use the Links feature extensively, I have set various defaults, etc. Will have to redo all of those after installing Windows 10?

Thanks for any guidance you can give me. Uncle Dewey

"you will also have to get acquainted with Windows 10"

I've toyed with the Win10 Preview & it's definitely going to take some getting used to. The Start menu is back but it's different than the Start menu of Win7 & previous versions. The new browser is called Project Spartan Microsoft Edge & is supposed to be the replacement for IE. But IE is still included if you need it for compatibility purposes - you'll have to find it's hiding place though (Accessories).

There are bound to be some things that will need to be set again but by and large it should keep most of them, including links in browsers. I'm basing this on previous upgrades.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Links should make no difference when you upgrade to Windows 10. The only thing you will need to do is to get acquainted with Internet explorer successor called Edge.

Err.. well, you will also have to get acquainted with Windows 10. Judging by the fuss and nonsense that was made about Windows 8, this one should only take about 12 months LOL.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
