Ever since Windows 10 was first released, a little blue box pops up on the bottom right side of your screen and asks you to upgrade. There’s no way to turn off the pop-up notification. This is Microsoft being pushy and trying to force as many people as possible to upgrade.
However, Windows 10 has caused plenty of bugs and glitches for many people who chose to get the upgrade. For example, certain special software that people use isn’t compatible with Windows 10, blu-rays won’t play on Windows 10 unless you buy a third party piece of software, numerous people have reported sound problems, and track pad problems. Some people who chose to get the free upgrade have found their computer gets stuck in a permanent loop.
Before you decide to upgrade to Windows 10, especially if you use your PC to run a business, it’s best to make sure that software you can’t do without, is compatible with Windows 10.
Microsoft has announced a major upgrade to Windows 10 that will be released in November which will supposedly fix a lot of glitches and bugs that people have been complaining about. If you don’t already have Windows 10, it might be wiser to wait until after this update to ensure you have a smoother transition.
Once most of the glitches are worked out, Windows 10 will be a great operating system, but a lot of my customers who upgraded early have had problems and wish they had waited before upgrading. If your PC is working fine, and you really don’t have the time or patience to solve upgrade problems, I’d wait for a while longer yet.
