Taking the plunge to Windows 10

I was a bit concerned about upgrading to Windows 10 in case some or all of my software that I use for providing transcription services wouldn't work anymore. 

However, I did want to upgrade to Windows 10 before the free time period expired... obviously free is better than paying for it and as I run a transcription services business, as with any small business, keeping overheads to a minimum is important.

So I overcame my concerns and took the plunge. I downloaded and installed Windows 10 back in March and was delighted to find that all my important transcription tools still worked perfectly. The bonus is I really like it.

I particularly like the Quick Access from which I can - as the name suggests - quickly recall my most recently used transcription files and folders so I can get to work on my transcriptions with fewer clicks.

As is the way of the world, all good things come to an end eventually and Microsoft's generosity is no exception. The free upgrade to Windows 10 will no longer be available from 29 July 2016.

So if you want to upgrade for free now is the time.

If you want more information about the pros and cons of upgrading to Windows 10 and the costs after 29 July 2016, here is an interesting article from Martyn Casserly on pcadvisor.co.uk.
