WINDOWS 7 – QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY COMPUTER IS RUNNING WINDOWS 7?
If the Start icon, normally at the bottom left of your screen, is round then you are not running Windows 8 or 10 and you are most likely running Windows 7 or earlier and will need to upgrade.
WILL WINDOWS 10 WORK IN A DIFFERENT WAY TO WINDOWS 7?
Yes there are differences in the way Windows 10 will work behind the scenes, but I will put the desktop icons you previously had on your new desktop so to a large extent you are oblivious whether you are running Windows 7,8, 8.1 or 10. Windows 10 shuts down in a very slightly different way, but I will show you how this is done.
CAN YOU TRANSFER ALL MY PROGRAMS TO THE NEW COMPUTER?
There are some programs that won’t transfer to Windows 10 because they are incompatible. Some programs may require you to have the original installation CD and a product key – if you don’t have these then it may not be possible to reinstall the program. I will work with you to identify what programs you have on the old computer and if there are likely to be issues with transferring them to the new computer.
WHAT HAPPENS ABOUT DISPOSING OF MY OLD PC AND HARD DISK?
If the old PC is not going to be used I will normally take out the old hard disk and leave it with you as a back up of your files that were transferred and also in case any files were missed in the data transfer because the were in a non-standard location. Once the hard disk has been removed the computer can then be disposed of in a small electrical recycling centre – your local tip!
