Impresson of Windows 10 Professional
Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2019
I use the product as the basis for my desktop. It plus two CAD programs is basically all the SW that is put on my computer. I am finding that MS, like it has done for every Windows update, seems to have changed things for the sake of change. Further, nothing is well explained. For example, I went to PowerPoint to make a simple chart. Not something that I was going to pitch, just a flowchart on a new app for Access. But that does not seem possible with PP-10 as it no longer has a place to select chart symbols on the top strip. I eventually found where they had hid the selection pane but I can't remember what I did and will have to search the next time I need it. Same thing with e-mail documents. They come in, I use Outlook to open them up. First they have a new invention, a 3 part reading pane with pane 1 having their list of files, pane 2 being the mail list and pane 3 being the left side of the mail. Finally I've found I can click or double click or maybe its triple click on the mails title in pane 2 and I get a new window wit the mail item fully expanded. But after I'm done reading there is no button to click to go back to the list if mails. Generally Windows 10 is simply harder to use but I'm quite sure that once I learn this kludge it will work fine until a year later when MS decides to stir the pot again.
