Shhh! Windows 10 is supposed to be bright and new and full of cool things everyone wanted. Forget about Windows 8! And don’t bother that Microsoft skipped over Windows 9 completely.

I believe I may have received the final Windows 10 upgrade warning. It was up on my Windows 7 PC screen this morning, shiny and bright. The question is, if I decline now, will it continue to bug me? Is the nightmare finally over?

Filed under: Main — Tags: , , — admin @ 12:01 am

The name of the program that displays files and folders in Windows 10 is called File Explorer. It was once called Windows Explorer. That keeps with Microsoft’s tradition of using the same or similar names over and over; they just can’t use the word “Explorer” enough, I suppose.

Windows 10 File Folder Tools
