    Windows 8.1

    Lost in Eight

    Yesterday I dug out my old laptop that is still running Win 8.1. The last time I updated it was 11/28/14. I had 168 updates to install. Haven't checked to see if any more updates are available yet. I have been using Windows 10 for so long I actually forget where everything is in Win 8. This is like learning a new OS.

    Instead of waiting for 168 updates why not Upgrade it to Windows 10 if it doesn't work out you could go back to 8
