Windows has an airplane mode?

8 and 10 do, they wont charge off an adapter that is higher than 65w in that mode.

Thanks. I was unaware of it.
Not much discussion of it anywhere, but it is there.
I guess not many people started using it until Win8

Most laptops do not pull over 65 watts on their charger so it probably never trips the change. My P50 uses a 170w brick and will only run but not charge the battery on the 65w varmint charger (this is the slim charger for all the ultra books).

Do you have any specific reasons for believing this?

I have been fortunate to have a side-by-side comparison of the two. Here are my observations:

About six months ago we were issued new laptops at my job. Prior to the upgrade, we had Windows 7 and MS Office 2010. After the upgrade, we now have Windows 10 and MS Office 2016.


I am doing exactly the same things now as I did before the upgrade, accessing and working on the same documents. Everything is slower. Here are the two most common causes of the slowness:
  • Many times you have to click two, or even three, times on something, in order for it to take. And you can't double click; you have to click once, wait a second, then click again. I have multiple screens; I double clicked on a shortcut which was on another screen; nothing happened. I double-clicked again; the document opened.
  • If I choose "save-as" on any type of document (text, etc), and I work my way to the desired folder and then click on the listing of a file already in that folder (so that I can simply modify the name rather than retyping it from scratch), as soon as I delete the undesired characters in the name, the cursor disappears for a few seconds. I then have to click in the name field, wait a second, then click again to unhighlight the name so that I can type in the field.

Can I go back to Win7 after the first month of Win10
My Grandson can't get Windows 7 back & hates Windows 10. He is into gaming & says none of his games work right on Win 10. His games won't play really at all the have problems with FPS and lots of errors when the game starts up. I hope that somebody can help me with this. Many thanks, MamaWolf

I'm staying with WIN7 and not Win10
I installed Windows 10 on my travel touchscreen laptop because it has Windows 8.1. It works OK but my desktop will stay Windows 7 as long as I can. I feel Win7 is very stable and for most regular users it works well. How about you? Will you stay with Win7 and not upgrade?

Win7 to Win10 Possibilities?
Anyone exploring the possibilities of moving from Win7 to Win10 upon release. Anyone with experience with Win10 can share insights for Win7 users - probably done before, but haven't seen much lately (mainly just Win8 to Win10). Thanks gumboman
