Updating to Win 10

I guess it's been asked quite a lot, but what program should I be looking for so I can update from Win 7 to Win 10 without having to buy the whole Win 10 program? Also, can I do so without wiping over all my programs and documents that I've presently got installed?

Hello Chips,

If you like, you can still use the method in the tutorial below to upgrade from a legally activated Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Just be sure you have Windows 10 drivers available for your PC or devices.

Well, I've updated, which took several hours last night. Question is though, before I sign up to the Win 10 forum, why is it that my new Internet Explorer acts more like it's on dialup? It-is-absolute-c***! Clunky and really, really, sloooow…I've checked and both Chrome and Firefox are okay. Is it because Microsoft wants us to all go over to this "Edge"?

Internet Explorer is no longer supported, so it could be some issue related to that.

Microsoft Edge is the newer version if wanted.

Really? So I've got Edge and my old IE on here and there's no new version of IE available? Blimey...Is there any way to transfer all my old favourites list to Edge?

Well, I did it. It saved all my old faves to their own unique folder within my new faves list, but that isn't any problem. I guess that's me almost totally off Win 7 then! It served me well for the long time I used it. I think I'll still keep it around as backup, just in case.

Looks like I'm going to give the RTM a shot.

Getting it updated is typically the first thing I do when installing a...
