    Computer constantly freezes up, fonts are always messed up..either too small or too big, won't give me the default fonts,....to play games on Facebook I can only play 2 games by going straight from Facebook, the other 2 games I play I have to go through Internet Explorer and then sign into FB from there. Speaking of playing games on FB, everytime I click to play the games it says I need flashplayer update but when I click the button to get flashplayer its says I don't need flashplayer with Windows 10 and says to make sure Shockplayer is enabled...which it is!!! So tired of all of these problems. Ready to go back to Window 7!!!!!

    I switched from windows 7 to 10. Working great so far. But in my opinion windows 7 is the best for gaming.

    don't use edge, download firefox or opera or chrome, edge will probably be really good someday but for now its really bad at video and flash

    Win10 seems to work fine for some folks, but so far I havent had much luck. At least on the one machine Ive tried it on, it doesnt seem to be ready for prime time.

    Ive now made two stabs at upgrading my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad T510) from Win 8.1 to Win 10. The first time, I didnt like the washed-out look, and tried to follow some advice on the web to get more color into title bars, task bar, etc. I wound up making a visual mess, gave up, and went back to 8.1.

    A week later, I tried again. This time, proceeding more carefully, I was able to make some changes to get a look that I liked (except that I was still stuck with the boring, white title bars). But, I started running into a variety of glitches:

    1. Random freezes for no apparent reason, the computer would go full stop, with no cursor and no response to anything on the keyboard. Power button reset was the only way out. I spent some time trying fixes I found on the web, but nothing seemed to help.

    2. The type-to-search on the start menu stopped working. I tried a suggested fix (disabling services that started automatically on the assumption that its a software conflict somewhere). At first, this seemed to work after a reboot, but then the problem came back.

    3. Icons on some, but not all, tiles on the start menu disappeared. The tiles were still usable because they carried text labels, and manually unpinning and re-pinning apps seemed to bring icons back (at least temporarily) so this was a nuisance rather than a show-stopper.

    The good news is that the process of reverting from 10 to 8.1 had been quick and smooth both times Ive done it. Ive read that the October release of Win10 may solve many issues, and maybe Ill give it another try then.

    My Dell XPS 12 Convertible had no issues, been using it since a fresh install of Windows 10 build last October and is still Insider build testing. Upgraded a Dell M1330 old laptop last week with no issues at all, works fine and surprisingly not as loud in the fan department as with Windows 8.1. The one upgrade I expected to be flawless was my SP3 considering it is a Microsoft product and have had no luck. I did the upgrade to Windows 10 a couple weeks ago and as soon as I did my first login there was crazy fan noise and overheating issues. I actually got the black screen with the thermometer show a few times and shutting down. I rolled back to 8.1 and now 8.1 is unstable where it ran perfectly before, it also now runs hotter with more fan noise then it ever had. I attempted another upgrade to 10 and now it just fails on one of the final reboots and reverts back.

    My Surface Pro 3 is having the same issues as R0bR. The cooling fan is on constantly even when just browsing the web using Edge browser. It often becomes bogged down and cannot keep up with my typing speed when posting on these forums. I've tried doing a fresh install from the settings menu but it asks me for the recovery media. Unfortunately I did not make a backup of my system before I installed W10.

    You don't need a backup to go back to previous version, the should be an option in the recovery section to revert back unless you've past the 30 day limit. As for fresh install I don't believe the SP3 Windows 10 recovery media is available yet.

    I installed W10 on July 29th as soon as it was released. I'm sick of my SP3's fan constantly running and Edge slowing to a crawl when all I am doing is light web browsing. It can't even keep up with my typing quite often.
