Folks can we at least change the subject line of this thread?

I think it depends on the individual computer. After installing W10
I got the usual notice from Firefox asking if it should be my default
browser and answered yes. It set and has continued. Firefox seems to
take a long time to load on both of machines, maybe too much stuff attached
to it. I still prefer it because I can run an ad blocker. Edge does seem
to be very fast. For some reason my internet speed sometimes gets slow.
When I reboot it comes back up. Not sure where this is happening but I was
getting the same thing in 8.1. It may be my anti-virus. I use Kaspersky
on this machine but am not sure I like it, it seems buggy. However, it has
a very good reputation.

Yes Richard, I'm having a similar experience too. The only "problem" was
that it was not so simple and direct to establish Mozilla Firefox as my
preferred web browser, because Windows 10 "forgot" my selection after I
closed it and open it again, but I found the way to do it from Windows in
the Toolbar. Anyway, I detected Mozilla became too slow to upload images
from the PC to Facebook, however using the new MS Edge explorer, things
were very quick perhaps Mozilla needs to be reloaded despite it works fine
to upload images to Flickr. I feel like my PC, in general, is quicker with
Windows 10 than with the 7 PS1 version.

I am also running Windows 10 64 bit version in a small Acer laptop.
So far it works fine but I have mostly new programs this machine except for
Photoshop 7. I did the same as you Carlos; I reserved an upgrade and
downloaded it almost as soon as it was available. Also installed fairly
quickly and fairly painlessly.

I'm using Windows 10 from July, 29th, it's a 7 and 8.1
versions mix and looks good. I did not wait for the notification about the
availability, I looked for it from the little application Windows Upgrade
installed on my 7 version and it was available. It took about 90 minutes to
install the new version; the installer kept all my files and software,
even the desk configuration and they are working fine, including VueScan
and the original Epson software for the v700.
