Re: Basic Windows 10 Question


I ran the upgrade on two systems and had to different experiences.  But if Jaws can read the prompts and you can follow them it shouldn’t be too difficult.  I can’t vouch for how well Jaws runs on Win10, but my Win7 to Win10 on one system was a piece of cake.  The other one hung up at 99% twice, so I ended up having to download the upgrade file to a USB device and install manually.  It worked like that, and both systems recognized all my old software, I suspect Jaws should be OK.  Freedom Scientific recommends removing any non-updated versions of Jaws, so you may need to delete older versions.  They have other notes on their website at:

OK, I am going to take the plunge as the “free” upgrade to Windows 10 will expire at the end of the month.  Are there any helpful tips when downloading and installing the new operating system?  I am reasonably computer literate and I am running the latest build of JFW.


Thanks in advance for any websites to visit in this regard,
