Starting my upgrade. All my reading says 4GB is fine for Windows 10.

We will see.

Wish me luck.

Will update this post with the outcome, LOL.



As upgrades go, I have to say, this was one of the easiest and most problem free, so far.

‘Pleased’ does not begin to cover it.

There was that one hiccup, entirely self-imposed. I tend to like to stick with what I know. Internet Explorer was my browser. I have to support it at work and so I use it at home as well. I am on enough learning curves as it is, thank you very much.

So, I keep clicking on the blue E, thinking that is IE. It keeps saying Edge.

What the hell is Edge?

Clearly, I have regressed to the status of cantankerous old Internet user who does not like change.

Internet Explorer Is Pitiful on Windows 10

Chewing my way down through the file system, I found my beloved, for the moment, Internet Explorer 11.  Finally, I thought, I will be able to do my thing as I like to do my thing.

Then, genius inspiration hit me.

Entering in the phrase ‘What is the best Internet browser for Windows 10?” I got the following link, ‘What’s the best Windows 10 web browser? The benchmarks are in.’

I also got the bad news about Internet Explorer; it sucks on almost every measure running on Windows 10.

Anyways, here is the link. It will also provide you a free guide on’How To Get The Most Out of Windows 10 File Explorer.’

So far, the interface has been fairly easy to navigate. I cannot spell out the differences between 8 and 8.1 and 10. I can only tell you that I thought the both of the first two sucked bogwater and I think I may like 10. I fully admit it may just be that I am in a better mental state to deal with it for whatever reason.

Anyways, I upgraded a DELL Optiplex 7010 with 4GB of RAM and it went like a breeze.

Best Regards,
