Thank you for your feedback on my Windows10 dilemma.
Last night I decided to upgrade and have a look at it in the morning.
This morning, I looked at it. Went through everything and found there were some changes, some losses, but worse, everything slowed down. It took 5 minutes for a page to open in the Internet. I tried it again and again, but it was so slow I checked my connection, deleted cookies, etc. etc.. Everything was good.
If I used Chrome, it seems browsing would be fast; but I choose, and prefer,
Firefox and because of that, it slowed me down to hair-pulling levels.
I went through everything, to be fair to windows10, and it was obvious that it wasn't working for me.
I reverted to Windows 7. There was a warning that I may lose some programs, so I went back on the Internet to back up my files. It took forever (this is where the hair-pulling comes in).
Finally, I gave up and just downgraded to Windows. This part only took 10+ minutes.
Everything came back, so far I can't find any missing programs.
My pulse is slowed down... and I'm relieved.
I guess it's an individual thing. To each his own.
