Thanks very much.

This is encouraging, and I appreciate it.

Will keep everyone posted, and will ask questions as I need to.

Hi Tom,

I completely agree with Dean, you should learn Windows 10 as it is, you have
a desktop just as in Windows 7 except you could, if you wanted, have
multiple desktops and switch between them with a keystroke, you have a start
menu which still has a list of all your applications and you have the
Taskbar which I find extremely useful since you can pin your most used
applications to it and access them by pressing the Windows Key+Number on the
Number Row. For example, if you have Google Chrome pinned as the first
application on the taskbar, then Outlook, then Excel and then Skype you can
press Windows Key+1 for Chrome, Windows Key+2 for Outlook, Windows Key+3 for
Excel and Windows Key+4 for Skype. You can go all the way up to Windows
Key+0 which means you can put 10 applications there and I don't even think
most of use that many.
Furthermore the Cortana search box which you get when pressing the windows
key is a great way to quickly find an application or folder or setting.
It will take a bit of practice and experimentation, but between the desktop,
the taskbar and using the search box I don't hardly ever even use the start
menu any more.

Regards,
Sieghard

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
