One think I have noticed with Windows 10 is that 8 gigs of memory really does make it less sluggish. also a solid state disc for the operating system also makes it boot faster and do operations like search more quickly.
These things have always been so on other windows versions though. I have not had it long enough to know if it suffers from the slowdown with time issue on previous versions though keeping up optimisation of the drives on those seems to head this off at the pass so to speak.

I’m in the process of making the switch to Windows 10 on my work machine and, trying it on one of our home machines, I have to say I’m impressed with how responsive it seems and how different it’s not, from Windows 7 that is.

I do have to do some digging to find things that have been renamed or placed in odd locations but if you’ve used Windows 8 in any form, the locations are similar. I may have even converted my husband who is a devout Windows 8.1 pro user.

Hi Nicholas,

I amusing Windows 10 without any problems using NVDA 2016.2.1 and JAWS 17. I
don't use Openbook but I found an article on the web that I think should
encourage you to go ahead and use Openbook 8:,,,

Would this be any help?

All the best,

Hi all,
Hope somebody can maybe assist me with some Windows 10 inforrmation.
I'm considering maybe buying a computer which is running Windows 10 to
repllace this computer which is old and giving me plenty of problems. Is it
very easy to use Windows 10 or is it a huge adjustment? I have previously
worked on a pc rnning Windows 8.
My mane questions for thee moment are:
1. I use Openbook 8.0 for scanning and reading documents. Would I be able to
run it on Windows 10 or would I have to purchase another copy?
2. Is there a certain amount of memory that I should get when upgrading to
Windows 10 or doesn't it make a differencce. I'm aware that I have to run
NVDA as Jaws doesn't support Windows 10 unless upgrading to the latest Jaws.
If anybody has any other advice and tips for me I would really apreciate it.
I llook forward too your responses.
