This weekend, I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade my laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
One word of advice – Pre-download the installation. It's pretty big. You don't have to install once you download, but when you do, you will definitely save yourself some time.
I'm not sure how long it took. I started at 11:45, but after lunch, when it started in the heart of the install, Cora and I went to the Post Office, storage, The Home Depot, and Target; so we were gone for a couple of hours. When I came home, I needed to log in. It asked a handful of questions, I chose some defaults, and about 15 minutes later, I was done.
I mean, it was no big deal.
No programs to reinstall.
I launched Chrome, and it even had my previous tabs still open.
I really haven't run into any issues. I haven't explored any of the dark corners, but so far, so good. Even my Nintendo emulator ran fine.
I'll keep you updated.
Have you done the update? If so, what issues did you run into?
