    It is inevitable that forums will reduce in members as time goes by. I wonder how many people are still active members of an XP forum, for example. I am now on Win 10 in both my pc and my laptop, and it is obviously going to take up a fair bit of time to customise and make sure all software is running correctly. I am still 'here' but have been busy. I still have win 8.1 on my older laptop which I gave to the grandsons when they visit. I will try and 10anlize that one soon as I can. Glad I changed, yes I am. Its good.

    true but it has already automatically deleted two programs apon installation. That kind of got me a little angry as i was told it wouldn't do that. I was also told upgrading would not change my settings, it did. I couldn't find the screensaver settings.. still lookingfor them, And also i have turned off the notifications for "firewall" 15 times now

    I haven't been here much since moving to Windows 10 and I'll be spending most of my time at tenforums.com. I just wanted you guys to know that it wasn't that I'm mad or upset with anyone or anything like that. You guys are great and I hope to see you all on the tenforums!

    Well, I'm not happy with the push towards cloud and the automatic updates. Have capped data on satellite. May end up dying with 8.1, sure not ready to make the switch to 10 very soon.

    I just thought of something(probably because I've only slept for 3 hours) I wouldn't say Eight Forums is dying out, but I have noticed the social interaction aspect has sure decreased, it's mostly just problems that are posted(other than the "games" in the chillout room).

    Don't forget - Even if you have no intention of moving to Windows Ten at the moment or even Ever, everyone is welcome at TenForums

    If you do join and use your same user name as here we'll do our best to give you the VIP access you've earned here, (if you end up with a different name, a quick post in the Welcome Thread, should sort things out.)

    We have no intention of ignoring or winding down, either our 8/8.1 users or EightForums itself, but a fall off of activity is to be expected with all the attention Windows 10 is getting presently
