My new Windows 10 Desktop

It's almost identical to my previous Windows 7 one - wonderful!

I spent two hours this afternoon, doing the upgrade.


My Photoshop Elements 11 and Lightroom 5 programs are still there. The only thing I've had to do so far, after upgrading to Windows 10, has been to set Google Chrome as my default browser & program opener. I've ended up with two shortcuts to the Google page, which I'll reduce to one, and I will need to re-activate Google Drive. Much to my surprise, my wireless Epson printer worked without any problem at all !


So I can recommend upgrading to Windows 10, if your PC is up to it, and while the upgrade is free.


My Desktop background is one of my recent Amsterdam photos, by the way ...


To set up one of your photos as your Desktop background, re-size it first of all to fit the dimensions of your Desktop, and then right-click on the image to set it as your background.


To set up a slide show for your Desktop background, right-click on the desktop > Personalize > click on the word "Picture" and select "Slide show" > Browse (lower down the webpage) > find and select the folder containing your images > select the speed of the slide show. Windows will do the rest. Brilliant!
