More Than One Way…

9 Dec

For a solid week, The Squire has been trying to get my files transferred from my old computer to this one.  Windows 10 doesn’t have a “transfer” plan that works, and the new computer was set up to run MSN, rather than Comcast, although my email address remained the same.

Having been raised straddling the Lutheran  and Episcopal churches, and being German to my toenails, I do not take kindly to change, especially when it does not seem to be for any good reason.

There is no mechanism on Windows 10 to set up an address book; all of your email comes from Outlook Express, which, for some reason, this machine won’t see. I just carried my old computer into the dining room and used it instead. Anyway, after much mumbling and cursing on his part, The Squire finally figured out how to get this machine to open in Comcast mode. All of my email addresses are there, my favorites are where I left them, and there  is peace in the valley again.

I still hate Microsoft.

    I am with you on this. Hey, Microsoft, keep your interface THE SAME! (Please forgive me for screaming.) So they sent me this little blurb asking me to let them know what I thought of Microsoft 10 (or whatever new system we’re on now). I was like, “Not so much. Your interface is affecting my productivity. And I don’t like that.” Eventually, I’ll learn the new, but until then, I’m wondering where my last document went.

      I loathe, loathe, loathe Windows 10. I’ve been using it now for a month, which I consider a fair trial, and I like it a little bit less each day.
      If it ain’t broke, fix it until it is.

        I totally agree! I think they just change it up to make people want the “latest and greatest.”
