The latest Microsoft Operating system is out. With any new operating system there are always questions on how to do certain things. Hopefully this FAQ page will answer some of your questions with Windows 10.
Q: Was the upgrade a free trial? Will I have to pay for it eventually?
A: The upgrade was a full release of the Windows 10 operating system. As long as you upgraded before the expiration date of 29 July 2016, then your copy of Windows 10 is free.
Q: What if I don’t like Windows 10, can I go back to my previous operating system?
A: As long as you “upgraded” to Windows 10, you will have 30 days to decide if you like Windows 10 or not. After the 30 days you are locked into Windows 10, unless you wipe and reload you computer.
To go back to your previous operating system please follow these steps. Go to Settings > Update & security > Recovery.
Q: Why does Internet Explorer look different?
A: With the Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft introduced a new web browser called Microsoft Edge. It was designed to be a lightweight, faster web browser. However if you would still like to use the original Internet Explorer it is still installed. All you have to do is click on the start menu and type “Internet” and you will see Internet Explorer as an option.
Q: Why did some of my programs disappear after upgrading to Windows 10.
A: If there were any program incompatibility with Windows 10, Microsoft automatically uninstalled these during the upgrade process. An updated version of the program may have to be installed once Windows 10 has finished updating.
