Hi there! My name is***** would be my pleasure to assist you with this. You aren't the only person with this concern. Yamaha is currently testing the compatibility of Yamaha products with the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. The compatibility information for each product will be regularly updated on their website. Please click on the link below to access this information the keyboard that you're thinking of buying isn't on this list, I recommend steering clear of it.

I'm sorry that I didn't provide the answer that you were seeking. You may visit and click on contact to request a refund form customer service. However, I'd like a chance to explain why that page is important. In order to interface you Yamaha keyboard with your computer running Windows 10, you will need a special hookup and special software. Some of the Yamaha keyboards will work with Windows 10 but will require a firmware update, which is an update to the software on the keyboard itself. Those that do are listed under firmware updates on that page. Also, that page indicates that the the Studio Manager v2 Host , which is the Yamaha software for the keyboards , is compatible with windows 10. The recommended hookup is the Yamaha UX16 is a simple One IN/One OUT MIDI interface which Yamaha recommend for basic MIDI I/O. Some competitive products work fine, some do not. It's best to stick with Yamaha product , the UX16, as Yamaha provides updated drivers for new operating systems and technical support if problems arise. Yamaha cannot provide drivers or support for competitors interfaces. Some of the low cost interfaces have no support at all. I hope that I have more thoroughly explained what you will need to know before making a purchasing decision. If you would like to tell me what which specific models you are considering I can provide specific information for those models.
