Big leap !!

Woman leaping over barrierTime will tell?! Microsoft was offering “free” upgrade to Windows 10–so I took the leap. Several years ago I purchased a laptop computer with Windows 8–and hated Windows 8. I took the computer back and bought one with Windows 7. Frankly, I’ve been very happy with Windows 7. 

Last night, I was thinking I should probably move up technically–so succumbed to Microsoft’s “limited offer.” (Technically, I’m in the dark ages: I don’t have a “smart phone”; I don’t have a Kindle; etc., etc.) This morning, I’ve had to search for my Picasa pictures.

Pulling hair out Postscript, 11:40: Pulling my hair out!! I’m a lot more computer “savvy” than many seniors my age. However, Google is really making it hard for me to get to my accounts. Their “security” is so secure, I can’t get in!! Furthermore, I’m supposed to use my security to ask questions of Cortana (Windows 10: “I’m Cortana. Ask me anything.”) and I can’t get to Cortana. Yippes!!!!!

Postscript, Monday, November 30, 2015, 1:30 PM: A concerned individual informed me that, in-the-long-run, I’d be much happier if I return to my tried-and-true Windows 7. Moments ago, I followed the instructions from this web link and, in less than eighteen minutes, I was maneuvering comfortably around Windows 7.
