    Default Upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10

    I have Windows 7 and FSX Gold
    I am considering upgrading to Windows 10
    If I upgrade to 10 will I keep all my software the same, i.e. scenery, planes etc.
    What are you thoughts and experiences doing that or is it best left alone.

    In my case, I purchased Windows 10 on a stick. Ran the installer. There were a couple really, really old games that refused to run on W10; but, FSX and 95% of everything else I had ran fine.

    If it all works well, sim and programs etc you use, don’t upgrade. W7 is great and I see no benefit at all going 10. Except more issues.

    Enter the modern world. You'll be glad you did.

    Win 10 is guaranteed more issues over Win 7. How many more issues will depend on the types of add-ons and hardware/software you have.

    In the past I ran 40+ years of games from one PC. It's no longer possible under Win 10.

    If you're upgrading only because you're hoping that FSX will "run better" don't. It won't.
