You can still use IE if you want. i think you find it in the apps.
Also set it up for desktop configuration, which makes it similar to Win7

I uploaded Win10 onto my Win7, for about 10 minutes. I hated it and immediately went back to Win7.

I run win 10 on my work computer. It's better than win 8 but nothing compares to windows 7, that was the best.

I am a firm believer in change and I will change next time I get a new computer and use whatever it has on it. I have 7 on this and it does everything I could ever hope for so why mess with it.

Microsoft Word was as good as it ever needed to be about 15 years ago. I’m still sticking with it till it wont load any longer.

Win 10 is pretty configurable. But you have to snoop around a little "under the hood" It takes more than a few minutes of staring at the new screens. You can set it up like win8 or win7. I set mine to be like Win7 and it is okay. Even the wife is dealing with it
One neat thing that I really like is "print to PDF". You see it like it's a printer when you go to the print dialogue; if you choose it as a the printer, it makes a PDF file from whatever you were going to print and allows you to name the file and save it to any folder. Works well with my old Quickbooks for reports and stuff.

But... they took away the ability to control updates.

So now, Bill and the boys can load anything they want on your Win 10 PC... and that is going to be a problem!

It's my machine, so I'll decide what get's loaded and what does not... Bill and the boys don't see it that way.

Because of this, the door is open for everything you do on your computer to be accessed by God only knows who and privacy will become more of a joke than it already is... c'mon Linux!
