    I am interested in retaining my desktop as it now is, with all those icons. I have windows 7 and perhaps 70 desktop icons/shortcuts that I use daily. What happens IF I go to Windows 10?

    8/10 times you'll upgrade and keep all files and whatnot's in the same place, but there have been users who lost most of their programs/media after upgrading.

    I would suggest backing up and maybe a screenshot of your desktop so you know what to put back and where... just in case things go south.

    Upgrade went well for me and I retained everything :)
