    Default Windows 7 or Windows 10?

    My laptop is currently running Windows 7 but I keep getting reminders to download Windows 10. Before I make a decision could anyone tell me pros and cons of both OS please?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't know about pros and cons but I switched from W 8 to W 10 on my desktop and W 10 is fine. I think that the security on W 10 is supposed to be better.

    After some good advice I have decided to stick with Windows 7.

    Why not create a dual boot system windows 7 and windows 10 then you have both to use as when required.

    I wanted to stick with 7 also but it's a pain having to constantly monitor the updates and identify/hide the 'bad' ones. Win 7 will only be supported for a few more years. Make the move to 10. There are (completely safe) ways to make it look like 7.

    I suggest not to update because win 10 always ask for updates its will ruin your experience

    I still wish XP was supported..... However after being dragged into the 21st century onto Windows 7 I am quite happy with it. Hubby downloaded Windows 10 in error and it pesters him with adverts they say you have to pay to be rid of. I hate his laptop and 10 with a passion. Sticking with 7 is excellent advice. That was the advice I was given too.
