  1. Huh? I know for sure that the latest build of Windows 10 (10586) can take older keys of Windows. I know because I did a clean install of it on my Windows 8.1 laptop witout upgrading before, and it automatically detected the key in the UEFI firmware and activated with digital entitlement. You should be able to enter your Windows 7 key during Windows 10 Setup and it would activate by digital entitlement once you connect to the internet. But you can of course instal 7 if you want. EDIT: You can download the latest Windows 10 ISO from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench
  2. Clean install 10 and use your Windows 7 key. Should activate with the latest ISO, but I'm not sure if it's available from MS.
  3. Yes, you should upgrade it to Windows 10. It's less intensive and takes up less space. And yes, you should be able to install it using the Windows 7 license key that is on the sticker under the PC, but you need the latest ISO with build 10586. I'll PM you a link soon.
  4. No. It's the same signal, just a different connector.
  5. Because Valve wants gamers to like them. They try to make every game they sell as good as it can be by constantly supporting and updating it.
  6. they have commited to supporting 7 until 2020 anyway.... And even though I use Windows 10 and I do recommend it, I think that forcing people to upgrade is a bad thing. Windows has an EULA, what if I disagree with it?
  7. It's mostly because Ctrl+Alt+Del can only be read by the Windows kernel, not a user-mode program. So if an organisation has the Ctrl+Alt+Del requirement enabled, a program wouldn't be able to fake the login screen because it cannot open it.
  8. That reason is most likely backwards compatibility, which is one of the huge advantages of the Windows desktop.
  9. Yeah, because that is totally related to the subject matter right now...
  10. If your budget is greater than €700, spend the most on the GPU.
  11. What game? If it's on Steam you can install it as much as you want.
  12. X-Plane http://store.steampowered.com/app/292180/ FSX: Steam Edition (re-release of MS Flight Simulator X from 2006) http://store.steampowered.com/app/314160/ Prepar3D (further development of FSX by Lokcheed Martin) http://www.prepar3d.com/ Feel free to ask me more. I'm a flight sim veteran.
  13. Android apps are written in Java. Android itself is a mix of C, C++ and Java.
  14. Do you have a Linux Live CD lying around? If yes, boot it and delete it there. If not, download an Ubuntu ISO, burn it to a CD, then do it.
  15. Ah, didn't know that. Thanks. You can't use Disk Cleanup?
  16. 1. Change the name. 2. Use Disk Cleanup
  17. Basically a download manager. Some sites use it to download. It doesn't send files.
  18. Why is MS still adding features to 7? Does 'end of mainstream support' no longer have a meaning?
  19. Yes, but you may be able to copy some programs (ones that don't rely on the registry), but you cannot copy the whole system. You cannot replace files that are in use. And even if you did, you would still have the problem you had before.
  20. You cannot just copy a system like that. I'm sorry, but you have to install all your programs manually.
