On researching my own problem I saw a reference to the effect that Microsoft only does a recheck of your computer's readiness once a month on the 15th so even if you have downloaded the necessary drivers etc. nothing will happen until the next 15th of the month!

Is there any way to stop the request to upgrade to Win 10 from  'popping up'  every time I switch on please.

You are doomed to use the forum's smiles  as yours are deemed photos and have to be entered below the text separately.

Hope this helps

Ken,
Not really - it's the Forums smileys that no longer work for me. Previously, I clicked on them and they were inserted in the text of the posting. Now I click on them and --- nothing!

Just spent the last hour and a half upgrading at last! All seems to have gone smoothly so far but it's early days yet. Emoticons don't seem to work in the Forum though. (But it does seem to work on the Model Boats site though therefore it must be all your fault Martin.)

Just had a long day changing operating systems; VISTA to Win 7 and Server 2003 back to XP Pro (mainly for my venerable copy of AutoCAD R14).
W10? No thanks - not until I have no other choice.
I really can't see the point in changing just for change's sake. My hardware wouldn't be up to it anyway, and I can do everything I need to do with what I now have.

I was trying out the new MS Edge Browser. Looks like it has some minor incompatibilities with other software. Trying out the Windows 10 Emoji: 😃

As you can see, it works but not very exciting!

Interesting! Using the new Edge browser which comes with Windows 10 I had problems with the text editor on the Model Boats website. A bit of Googling suggested that this is because Edge doesn't support the 'compatibility view' settings in IE which enables older software designed for earlier versions of IE to be run properly.

So I have switched to IE in Windows 10 and when I try to put a smiley into a post on here it displays the characters rather than the smiley picture but shows the smiley properly in the preview so the following might just possibly look OK in the actual post itself:     :-)) %) %% {-)

Looking at the comparisons, I don't think I need the extra features provided by MS Edge anyway.

Colin

Edit: It worked!  :-)) :-)) ok2 Looks like the smiley issue is browser dependent when using Windows 10 then.
