Correct

Microsoft has announced The free upgrade offer will end on July 29.

I will be updating my church laptop after Sunday as our tech guy felt it is time to update the church systems before we get charged for it. Luckily all the software we need for the sound booth also runs on Win10 as I use my Lenovo Ideapad POS as an emergency backup. My MacBook Pro is also configured for a backup system, but my counterpart doesn't like Macs.

If you want to take advantage of the free upgrade to 10 now but continue using 7 or 8, you can use a program like Macrium Reflect (free version) and clone your drive. Let m$ do the upgrade to 10 on the original drive. After it is installed and activated, make sure you see the notice “Windows 10 on this device is activated with a digital entitlement.”, you can roll back to previous windows, or copy your cloned image back to the original, or just switch to the cloned drive to go back to using previous version of Win. m$ will always allow you to upgrade that computer to 10 at any time in the future. Even a year from now. Provided you don't change too much hardware.

+1 on image backups, before & after. I did that when first installing the free Win10 and after testing it, I imaged it and rolled back to Win7. I doubt I'll likely ever use the Win10 image but it isn't eating much so I'll keep it in case.

BTW, I use Aomei Backupper for imaging, it's another good freebie.

I made the change to Win 10 almost a year ago. It made the computers start-up faster. The only thing it didn't support was a scrolling function on my touchpad on the laptop. I have since purchased a new laptop with touchscreen, and tablet functions, and Win 10 is the only option there.

I liked Win 7, and back in the day thought Win NT, Windows 98 were okay, but time and software move on. We're not talking about Windows 95 or Windows Vista here. Time to get over it unless you have 32 bit applications that just can't make the leap.

Heck, I've got 16 bit applications that I cannot use since going to a 64 bit Win 7 OS.
I didn't jump from XP to 7 until 2014; so for me, 7 is a new OS.

I don't know what my former colleagues are using in the the SCIF these days.
Windows NT was the OS in the SCIF for many years because it has less interoperability; and the IT folks could enforce group policies that kept it reasonably secure.

Have you tried setting the Compatibility Mode to Win 95 or 98? Occasionally it does work. . . not every time though.

16 bit applcations work on Win 7 32 bit. The 64 bit OS has the 16 bit system gutted.
16 bit goes back to the IBM AT days.

Makes me wonder if anyone is still running things like Ashton Tate dBASE IV or FoxPro 2.0.
