Every new version of Windows, from the very beginning of Windows, has moved closer and closer to being your grandma's version. With all due respect to Grandma's everywhere, there are some that are light-years ahead of me and any OS, but I think you know what I mean. The idea that we all use the PC for e-mail and solitaire and don't even need to see anything "behind the scenes" prevails. Slowly the different functionalities have melted away. In some cases even the customer facing applications have lost abilities. Remember how you once could edit music and movies with WMP? Windows 10 is no exception. It's like the difference between opening the hood of a 1967 Camaro and a 2016 Camaro.
Having said that (for the millionth time, sorry) I have found Windows 10 to be probably the best OS that Windows has ever produced. Clearly thought out and all of the horrible horrible mistakes made in Vista and 8 overridden with functionality that works for everyone. The one thing that bugs me more than anything else is that I need to open Windows Explorer to what to me is an obscure useless window, THEN click on "This PC" to bring up what used to be the old "My Computer" window. I put a This PC tile on the touch screen desktop to avoid that, but it just seems WRONG to me.
That brings up a point that you might, or might not, find useful if you have not looked into this already. If you're using Windows 10, bring up your settings screen and click on the "Personalization" option. If you turn on the "Use Start full screen" option it will detach those tiles from the program/app list. This will make it look more like the old Windows. I don't know why they made the tiles attached as the default. All it does it duplicate some of what is on the programs list. Turning the full start screen on also gives you 2 desktops that you will move back and forth from seamlessly. The tiles are handy if you have a touch screen or for favorites, but I don't want them on my Windows desktop OR showing up when I bring up the programs list. Also, for apps that don't show up in the Add/Remove Programs list, just right click (or press & hold) and a drop down will have an uninstall option. The only exception I have found to this is that stinkin' OneDrive. I don't like that they made OneDrive a default start-up program, but you can turn that little shit off too.
Otherwise, I like it a lot.
