No need to do that. Windows 10 menu system is far better than 7.

Things seem to much smoother compared to Win 8.1 - I used to get stutters in BOX on WOL now and again, sometimes making it unplayable.. Not a single hiccup with Win 10! :)

That might've been linux back in 2010 but I haven't had very many issues. :nice:

But didn't windows stop pushing security updates for 7? So wouldn't you be more vulnerable?

No idea. I resisted W10 right up until the last second of the 'free upgrade' and did it then, after saying 10 Hail Marys' crossing myself 30 times and sacrificing a few chickens. I've been lucky so far in that it just worked, as did my sons upgrade to W10.
I was quite happy with W7 TBH, and hate all the apps and shit, which is why I have as much stuff turned off as possible, and Classic Shell to at least let me pretend it's still W7.
At the moment I'm getting a constant fucking prompt about 'creators update' or something, which I dare say I will have to install eventually.
