I recently took the plunge and upgraded from 7 to 10 and, aside from the pain of spending a little over $100 for the new OS, it was about as painless as doing an update for DCS!! I didn't lose a single piece of data nor any cookies or saved URLs. It really was a piece of cake!  :thumbsup:


Any pilot that tells you he's never been lost is either lying or he's never been anywhere.

FYI: Windows 7 support officially ended on January 14, 2020.  That means since then Microsoft stopped pushing security and feature updates.  Windows 8.1 Extended Support ends on January 10, 2023.  Once security updates end, these operating systems become increasingly vulnerable to compromise.  It may be prudent to consider moving away from these systems where possible.  :glasses3:
