Case in point, if I am out and about on my Yoga, I make want to use the Start Screen but when I have it in laptop mode, I may want to use the Start Menu.


    Well i could live with that, but isn't it better to wait for Windows9, because for Windows 10 i must know if compatible with Windows 8 computers.

    thanks

    Hi there. There won’t be a Windows 9. The next edition is 10.

    So far as system requirements for now with the Preview:

    Windows 10 Technical Preview - Clean Install

    Doesn't the Windows 7 Start menu have a bunch of other stuff on the right side, various functions and ways to access parts of the OS (control panel, devices, documents, etc.), that would now be occupied by the live tiles in Windows 10? So the live tiles are going to take their place, and that won't be coming back? Or are they going to manage to put all that stuff in there somehow so we have the best of both worlds?

    Either way. It's all in the tutorial I linked above.

    Your speaking of My Computer, Control Panel, My Docs, etc that was on the right side of the Start Menu. Not sure if they will, but they don't have to be live tiles. I would think you could create tiles of any of those links to place there instead so to be similar.

    I haven't got 10 installed yet, for I'm having hardware problems.

    I agree with this.

    I do like idea of Windows 2015, but probably would call it Windows 15, like Windows 95 and Windows 98.

    Yes H.G.

    i read the tutorial, but what is the advantage for me to install with UEFI, does this improve the computer or what.

    I ask this because i have 256 gb with Windows on, but a smaller partition has my main folders which i really do need.

    So if i have to remove everything, i hate that, even when i have 3 B.U. already.

    If there is no advantage, i will not use something i do not need.

    thanks
