The one feature, which most of all I would like to turn

anyone knows how to make it, so that any and all searches

Trouble With Right Alt+Arrow Keys
will weigh in on this, not trying to argue, but I
had a windows XP computer I bought in 2004. I used
it until December 20, 2018 when it gave up the

I used Viper and Firefox to access the web. I used

Indeed, and I
was not trying to imply you wouldn't, nor that
continuing to use Windows 7 is a good idea.
I have, however, witnessed an awful lot of clinging
to dead OSes, and some people are going to do it
regardless of how bad an idea it is to do so. But
those programs that currently run under Win7 in
their current versions will keep doing so for a
very, very long time.
It still only makes sense, if one is sticking with a
given OS ecosystem, to keep up-to-date with the
latest version of that OS as a daily driver.
