Yes, but you don't get to it in the same way, and I always forget how I did it before.

What function or command can't you find, Windows 10 still has the classic control panel in edition to the Settings app.

I have a Windows 7 machine and my wife just got a Windows 10 machine. I
need to use screen readers to access everything and sometimes have to work
on her computer. It sure would be nice if I did not have to relearn where a
function or command was on her computer. I had both computers on a network
and they communicated nicely until her computer auto updated it's self and
now I can't get onto her computer through my network from my computer. It
keeps asking for a user name and pass word which I never set up for. How do
I turn this off on her computer, so I can access it from my computer again?

Dean:

I appreciate your thoughts here.

And, I'll check out the web site you suggest.

Will see what others have to say, and hope that this entire discussion
thread benefits other list members too.

All told, I haven't found a justification for the apprehension some users
feel about switching to Windows 10. I can't think of a setting that somehow
makes Windows 10 more like Windows 7 than it would have been otherwise.
There were definite things one had to do with windows 8, but not Windows 10,
at least not that I can think of.

I'm not sure, but I don't think so.

I was told that you can go into settings and make the needed changes
somehow, but I don't know if that is correct, and don't have a clue how to
do it.

I appreciate everyone's patience.

Are you referring to classic shell from classicshell.net ?

Subject: Switching To Classic View In Windows 10 for Windows 7-type View

Hello, everyone.

I am about to purchase a new laptop, which, of course, will have Windows 10
as its operating system.

I have heard from several sources that you can configure a Windows 10
computer to have a classic view, which resembles the Windows 7
configuration.

This sounds quite appealing to me, since it will make the switch to Windows
10 much easier.

Can someone tell me if this is true; and if it is, can you tell me how to
accomplish this?

I hope this isn't considered too "off topic", but I can say that I'll be
using the latest build of Jaws 2018 on the new Windows 10 machine.

Thank you!

Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan
