Geek Squeaks #2015-3 @ What’s On My PC (Featuring Differences Between Windows 8 and Windows 10 and MORE)

The Differences Between Windows 8 and Windows 10 – I currently have my Windows 8.1 desktop and an older Windows 7 laptop. What surprised me was my Windows 10 upgrade hit the laptop first. I am still waiting for the upgrade for the desktop to kick in. I did complete the upgrade on the laptop and I must say (as first impression) I found Windows 10 quite comfortable to navigate and use; HOWEVER, there are differences between what I was accustomed to in Windows 8 (and Windows 7).

To get a good read on the differences, I suggest you read this article at Tech Advisor — “Windows 8 vs Windows 10 comparison: What’s the difference between Windows 10 and Windows 8? New features in Windows 10, and why you should upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 10” …

A Windows Tech Toolbox Repair Utility – If you find yourself in a situation where you know that the Windows operating system has been crippled, you may want to give Windows Repair a try. I pretty much has used this as a last resort tool in instances where everything else has failed. I have had good luck with this tool in those instances and yes this program is compatible with Windows 10. I have added this utility to the portable apps swarm on the downloads page.

  1. Unless you are paying for very big bandwidth, that Motorola modem Rich is recommending is gross overkill. I only pay for 50Mbps on Time Warner; and, for only $25 (well over a year ago), I was able to buy a Motorola SB6121 which TW accepts for that. It works flawlessly. Indeed, I consistently get a little more than 50Mbps. For higher speeds there remains a big middle ground which is still considerably less expensive than the SB6183.

    (I must admit that the company from which I purchased the SB6121 at that bargain price – – seems no longer to be in operation. There have been some serious complaints against them. Apparently I lucked out. Nevertheless, you will still see occasional good markdowns on the SB6121 and similar modems.)
