Abby, where were you?

Someone asked where I was yesterday...I'll tell you. I called my 'computer guy' Monday and his (new) wife (business partner) called me back a few hours later to tell me he is trying to figure out when he could get here since we are an hour from him. She 'promised' she would call back that day. No call Monday or Tuesday and there I sat with my new computer trying to figure things out. So, I did what others suggested and tried to move the stuff from old to new computer by myself. After three hours of total frustration I took a break to look at the mail. In the mail was our new phone book. The joke of this phone book is that at best it is about 1/8th of an inch thick, if that and it is big print to boot. I checked out 'computer services' and found a guy who makes house calls and he's in the area. I called, left a message and he returned the call in ten minutes. guess what, he's coming today at ten am. I know when it's time for me to turn thing over the the 'pro' and this was the time. I didn't want to get to the point of calling my new computer nasty names LOL. I did manage to get Office up and running and I have figured out that Windows 10 isn't as scary as I thought it would be. So that is where Abby has been and probably will be most of the day. Hopefully I'll be back to 'normal' tomorrow. Have a good day everyone.

@AbbyGreenhill I mean the things that Windows 10 will share with Microsoft and that "could" be transmitted to other countries. Those "policies" are automatically enabled in Windows 10, unless you spend hours going through DOS commands to find how to change them. My husband does this for his professional clients, but no normal user will ever check this.

@AbbyGreenhill If you just want to have an idea, read this. But skip, if you are happy with Windows and you do not care about security and privacy.
Windows 10 has some handy new features, but if you believe the rest of the internet, it also comes with features that eviscerate any semblance of privacy. But that view is a little overblown. Let’s take a closer look at what each of these settings actually
