Windows 10 Upgrade?


David Russell
 

Hi NVDA group,

I currently have Win7 on my computer, but am noticing the frequency of
upgrade to win10 is occurring more often during the day. My questions
are these:
-If I select yes, will it write over Win7 or somehow make win7 disabled?

-Will "all programs" currently accessed be moved to function in win10?

-How do I tell if the version upgrade is 32-bit or 64-bit? I do have
the latest version of NVDA running.

Thanks for the help which will lead me to move or not move.
Regards,

I did the upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10 a couple months ago and it went just fine. All my files, folders, and more important--all my programs were still there just as though nothing much had happened at all! I didn't need to reinstall anything although I did reinstall nvda over the existing copy just to be sure. Just choose the option to keep everything and I think that is the default and you should be good to go.

Hi David


have a look under your C:\ drive. if there is only a program file there
it is a 32 bit machine.


If it says program file and also has a extra directory called program
files x86 then this is a 64 bit machine.


There is a audio tutorial on upgrading from window 8 I think it is to
windows 10 and the steps to do it.


You will only be able to use your screen reader up to a part, then when
it starts to reboot 7 times there will be no screen reader support.
There will be a time it may vary then you bring up narrator to finish
off the job.

The link can be found on my nvda audio tutorial page at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

You will need to look for the heading that refers about upgrading to
windows 10. It can also be found on my nvda tutorials for windows 10
page as well at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html



most upgrades do go nicely but you do have the odd one or 2 that cause
trouble. In that case it might be drivers needed or not supported.


By the way i think the free upgrade ends at the 29th of this month.


hope this helps.

I wouldn't bother about it.
tomorrow is upgrade end, the nags should stop within the next day or 2 if you can handle it a little longer it will die.

If you definitely do not want win 10, then look online for a program called never 10 and run it. it gives you what your current state is and each time you select the item it will change to reflect the current setting. Turning it off stops everything from updating.
In answer to your other question, as far as i know windows 10 works like a big version of system restore in that it puts 10 in keeping everything that can work as it was and storing windows 7 in a special folder. You have i seem to recall 1 month before this folder is deleted. After that you cannot go back to 7 again.
